- 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.

Centimeters and Inches

2nd Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Length

Big Idea:How do we understand the difference between inches and centimeters? Why does measuring a given object in centimeters always give a bigger number than measuring the same object in inches?

Equal Amounts

2nd Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Adding and Subtracting the Basics

Big Idea:Students are expected to grasp that measuring the same object with different units can yield a different number, but represent the same quantity.

Making a Robot: Measurement Project

1st Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Time is Money: Hitting all the MD Standards

Big Idea:Do your kids love doing the robot dance move?! Get them excited about measurement with dancing and a culminating project that is sure to enhance their understanding of nonstandard measurement.

Using Different Units to Measure Day 2

1st Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Non Standard Measuring

Big Idea:Students continue to measure floor strips with a choice of three different units.

Different Unit, Same Length

1st Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Inch by Inch, Paperclip by Paperclip

Big Idea:This lesson doubles as an extension in first grade and as an introduction to 2nd grade measurement. Students notice how different units affect their measurements.

Attributes of 3D Shapes Part 2

2nd Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Geometry

Big Idea:Students should be able to relate the attributes of 3D shapes to those of 2D shapes.

Review of Telling Time to 5 Minutes

3rd Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Time

Big Idea:Review and enrich telling time to 5 minutes.

Measure It To Add It!

2nd Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Measure This Measure That!

Big Idea:The students will be able to measure the lengths of objects in both inches to explore the inverse relationship between size and number of units. Using Addition

Measurement Strategies

2nd Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Strategies That Work

Big Idea:There is more to measurement than inches and centimeters. Can you measure a ball with a ruler or a cup of water with a yardstick?

Add and Subtract with length.

2nd Grade Math

Â» Unit:

Measure This Measure That!

Big Idea:SWAT add and subtract problems involving length.

2.MD.A.1

Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.

2.MD.A.2

Measure 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.3

Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters.

2.MD.A.4

Measure to determine how much longer one object is than another, expressing the length difference in terms of a standard length unit.
