Topic A: Comparison of Length and Height

Lesson 3 Concept Development and Problem Set

Draw a monkey with a very long tail. Draw a monkey with a very short tail. Now, draw a yummy banana for the monkeys to share. Is the banana longer than or shorter than the tail of the first monkey? Is it longer than or shorter than the tail of the second monkey? Tell your partner what you notice.

Pretend that I am pirate who has traveled far away from home. I miss my house and family. Will you draw a picture as I describe my home? Listen carefully and draw what you hear.

1. Draw a house in the middle of the paper as tall as your finger.
2. Now draw my daughter. She is shorter than the house.
3. There’s a great tree in my yard. My daughter and I love to climb the tree. The tree is taller than my house.
4. My daughter planted a beautiful daisy in the yard. Draw a daisy that is shorter than my daughter.
5. Draw a branch lying on the ground in front of the house. Make it the same length as the house.
6. Draw a caterpillar next to the branch. My parrot loves to eat caterpillars. Of course, the length of the caterpillar would be shorter than the length of the branch.
7. My parrot is always hungry and there are plenty of bugs for him to eat at home. Draw a ladybug above the caterpillar. Should the ladybug be shorter or longer than the branch?
8. Now draw some more things you think my family would enjoy.
9. Show your picture to your partner and talk about the extra things that you drew. Use longer than and shorter than words when you are describing them.

1. What did you notice when you changed the object you were comparing within our mystery bag activity?
2. What did you think about when you were deciding how to draw the pirate’s daughter?
3. What did you think about when you were deciding how to draw your caterpillar? How were the words longer than and shorter than useful when you were telling your partner about your picture?

Lesson 3 Homework

Take out a new crayon. Circle objects with lengths shorter than the crayon blue. Circle objects with lengths longer than the crayon red.

On the back of your paper, draw some things shorter than and longer than the crayon. Draw something that is as long as the length of the crayon.

Learning Goal

I can compare a lot of things that are longer than or shorter than.
