Visually distinguish between items based on measurable criteria.
Compare objects by size, length, weight, and capacity.
Use a given reference unit to compare the length of objects.
Understand that the more units an object has the longer it is.
Use basic reasoning (and understandings of objects in real-life) to compare objects is terms of weight.
height, weight, heavy, light, tall, short
- Students colored and compared the size of 2 pictures using counting animals, shells and circles.
- Students measured the length of different actual materials in room with stacked squares.
- Recognized real life size of the picture, student compared the height and weight.
- Student measured small, medium and large items with measuring tape.
- Set out large pieces of paper, markers and unifix cubes or lego.
- Take turns tracing hands (mom, dad and child) on the piece of paper.
- Start at the bottom of each hand and carefully line the cubes/lego until you get the highest point.
- After you have finished lining up count the cubes. Find out who had the longest hand.
