In this hands-on lesson, your students will get to sharpen their measuring skills as they measure lengths of items in your classroom to the nearest quarter inch. They'll get to then use their data to create line plots.
Bigger, taller, shorter, or longer? In this spring lesson plan, students will compare two objects and create their own spring-themed comparison worksheet. They will draw pairs of pictures and come up with their own comparison questions.
Let your child pretend to be an interior designer for a day, taking and comparing measurements of their bedroom’s furniture. With the dimensions of their room in mind, and all of the objects in it they enjoy using, your child can begin calculating just where different objects belong. Activities like these, and others listed below, will help teaching comparing measurements, but also build addition, subtraction, and other skills.
