When learning about measuring and comparing, it’s important to ensure students have the correct vocabulary to make direct comparisons of attributes that can be measured when two objects are placed side by side. These include weight, size, and length.
See the fact file below for more information on the measuring and comparing or alternatively, you can download our 23-page Measurement and Data: Measure and Compare CCSS K.MD.2 worksheet pack to utilise within the classroom or home environment.
Key Facts & Information
- At the end of the lesson, students will be able to directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common to see which object has “more of”/”less of” the attribute and describe the difference.
A NOTE FOR THE TEACHER
- When teaching measuring and comparing, try the following in your lesson:
- Use the number of objects to correlate with the number. This way, students recognize the quantity with a written numeral.
- Teaching vocabulary is important at this stage. Students must be able to correctly associate a written number with the spoken word and its tangible amount.
- When learning about measuring and comparing, it’s important to ensure students have the correct vocabulary to make direct comparisons of attributes that can be measured when two objects are placed side by side. These include weight, size, and length.
- Therefore, the vocabulary necessary to fulfill this standard includes longer, shorter; heavier, lighter, bigger, smaller, more, less.
- While much of this worksheet pack is based on visual comparisons, it’s important for tangible comparisons to take place, as this will prevent assumptions from taking place. Similarly, in the real world, students will discover that a large balloon might be bigger than a book, but the book is heavier!
- When comparing length, make sure that students line up the ends correctly, so that their measurements are accurate.
- During the lesson, ensure that the student clearly explains the answers that they arrive at.
- For example, “This ruler is longer than this crayon because I lined up the ends, and I can see that the end of the ruler sticks out further than the end of the crayon, which means the ruler is longer.
