I apparently can't do 6th grade science.

My daughter's science homework is driving me crazy. It's one of these crossword puzzle deals. She's filled the entire thing out save one answer, and as I'm 30 I'm somewhat shamed that I cannot seem to answer a 6th grade science question. Maybe you can help.

The CROSSWORD PUZZLE in question is entitled, "METRIC MEASUREMENT" and is all about.. metric measurement.
11 Across reads, "measuring device to use for cubed shape solids."
Um, what? That doesn't make sense to me on a number of levels - measuring what? Surface area? Volume? Density? What?
Worse, I've double-checked her other answers and as far as I can tell they're all correct, which means that this is an ELEVEN LETTER WORD(S) in the following format:
M _ _ _ _ _ R _ _ E _
I've even tried plugging that into a couple of the crossword tools online, to no success.
I feel like this is something stupid and I'm just not seeing it. Any clues, hive mind?
