Description

Take a trip to the fire station to learn how firefighters use measurement to put out fires! This engaging title takes young readers through the history of firefighting and the development of fire engines, teaching them how firefighters have measured extinguishing water throughout the years. Firefighters used to carry three-gallon buckets of water to toss on a fire! Some old water tanks held 90 gallons of water! These fun facts, paired with related practice problems, help readers learn more about measurement, volume, perimeter, and STEM topics.
