- 2.MD.A.1Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.
- 2.MD.A.2Measure the length of an object twice, using length units of different lengths for the two measurements; describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen
- 2.MD.A.3Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters.
- 2.MD.A.4Measure to determine how much longer one object is than another, expressing the length difference in terms of a standard length unit.

Broken Ruler Measurements

3rd Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Measurement

Big Idea:Using a broken ruler requires students to turn to addition and subtraction skills in order to determine measurements.

Adding and Subtracting with Lengths

2nd Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Length

Big Idea:Students will use their addition and subtraction strategies to measure and compare distances, solving using centimeter units.

Science is "Snow" Much Fun! (Part 2)

2nd Grade Science

Â» Unit:

Igniting Science Inquiry

Big Idea:A melting snowman experiment is snow much fun!

Lines and Line Segments

2nd Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Geometry

Big Idea:Common Core expectations for second grade are that students will be able to measure a line segment, record the length in appropriate units, and add and subtract to compare the lengths of the lines.

Measurement and Symmetry

2nd Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Length

Big Idea:Students should be able to use a variety of measurement tools to measure both small and larger distances. Common Core Standards expect students to measure and compare those distances.

Assessment

2nd Grade Math

Â» Unit:

More Complex Numbers and Operations

Big Idea:Assessment provides us with a chance to see what children understand and what they still need to work on.

Let's Compare

2nd Grade Math

Â» Unit:

More Complex Numbers and Operations

Big Idea:A comparison is not the addition of two numbers, but a difference. Seeing the visual difference is the focus of this lesson.

Oh Me! Applying Measurement,Multiplication & Fraction Skills to Make a "Me" Person. Day 2

4th Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Fractions 3 Mini Unit: Multiplying Fractions by Whole Numbers

Big Idea:In this lesson, students complete their project by applying measuring skills in standard measurement to the nearest 1/4 inch and creating a model of themselves.
