Comparison is one of the most crucial math skills second graders learn, because it can be applied to so many other disciplines across the elementary school curriculum. In this measurement and data lesson, kids will work on object comparison and graphing. The exercises ask kids to list objects in size order, estimate length, note differences in length, and make bar graphs.
This math lesson is filled with fun hands-on non-standard measurement activities! The lesson begins with an interactive story then has students explore measurement using several different objects as their tools!
Introduce students to measurement tools with this fun hands-on activity. Students will get plenty of practice comparing length and weight as well. Use this scaffolded EL lesson plan alone or with **How Big is It?**.
Teach your students the early concepts of measuring with a ruler and comparing lengths with this hands-on lesson. Students use popsicle sticks to measure magazine cutouts using comparative adjectives such as big, bigger, and biggest.
