Worksheets, solutions, and videos to help Kindergarten students learn how to compare length measurements with string.

Topic A: Comparison of Length and Height

Lesson 2 Concept Development and Problem Set

Draw a picture of something that you have seen that is very tall. Compare your picture to your friend’s. Is the item in his drawing taller than yours or shorter than yours? Are you sure? How can you find out?

Cut out the picture of the string at the bottom of the page. Compare the string with each object to see which is longer. Use the line next to each object to help you compare. Color objects shorter than the string green. Color objects longer than the string orange.

Draw something longer than, shorter than, and the same length as the picture of the string on the back of your paper. Color objects shorter than the string green. Color objects longer than the string orange.

1. What did you notice as you compared each object to the string?
2. Did you do anything different as you compared the lengths? What did you need to be sure to do? Why?
3. Did you predict if the string would be shorter than or longer than before you measured?
4. Explain to your partner how you compared the heights. Did your partner do anything different?
5. Does it matter which way you compare two objects? Why? How did you compare the string and the door?
6. Did your partner find something that was longer for his string that was shorter for yours? Did she find something that was shorter for her string that was longer for yours? Why did that happen?
7. What new math vocabulary did we use today to communicate precisely?
8. How did the Application Problem connect to today’s lesson?

Lesson 2 Homework

Using the piece of string from class, find three items at home that are shorter than your piece of string and three items that are longer than your piece of string. Draw a picture of those objects on the chart. Try to find at least one thing that is about the same length as your string, and draw a picture of it on the back.
