Measurement (Kindergarten)

Videos, solutions, and songs to help Kindergarten kids learn to describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight. Describe several measurable attributes of a single object.

Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has “more of”/“less of” the attribute, and describe the difference. For example, directly compare the heights of two children and describe one child as taller/shorter.

Common Core Standards: K.MD.1 and K.MD.2

Learning Targets:

  • I can describe measurable attributes of objects.
  • I can describe the measurable attributes of a given object.
  • I can use measurement and geometric vocabulary when describing the attributes of objects
  • I can tell which object is longer (or shorter or taller) than the other by comparing them side by side.
  • I can tell which object can hold more (or less) than the other by filling up one of the objects and pouring it into the other one.
  • I can tell which object is heavier (or lighter) by lifting one in one hand and the other in my hand.
  • I can tell which object is warmer (or colder) than the other by touching them.
