Measurement is usually caught in schools by showing and instructing students on how to use the instruments with little or no reference to the historical developments and indigenous practices of the measurements. Hence this basic and very important concept and skill is normally taught out of context for most students in Africa, If not for most parts of the world. The treatment ill this study were the inquiry/discovery lesson plans for the measurement of length, mass time, volume, area and temperature developed by the authors based on indigenous Botswana practices.
