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 support lesson provides students the opportunity to use two different tools to measure the length of familiar objects while introducing content specific vocabulary words. Use alone or alongside the lesson How Big is the Playground?
Get your students excited about measuring with this fun and colorful hands-on activity! Your students will see the difference between centimeters and inches as they use the included ruler to measure a fidget spinner, toy car, and other fun objects.
Get your rulers ready because it's time put those measuring skills to the test! Students will use their own rulers to complete this end of year assessment, measuring and comparing in both inches and centimeters.
