Intuitive Feel For Measurement

I think every elementary school should have a measurement day when children learn to estimate measurements. You would show them what a metre, mile, km, kilogram, gram, milligram, quart, litre, pint, hectare, acre, square mile, million dollars etc. looks like by finding or creating examples in the local environs. Then they would practice estimating with prizes for the most accurate estimates.
