Worksheets, solutions, and videos to help Kindergarten students learn how to compare lengths using taller than and shorter than with aligned and non-aligned endpoints.

Topic A: Comparison of Length and Height

Lesson 1 Concept Development and Problem Set

In each pair, circle the taller one. Imagine the paper strips are lying flat on a table.

Draw a flower that is taller than the vase.

Draw a tree that is taller than this house.

In each pair, circle the shorter one. Draw a bookmark that is shorter than this book.

Draw a crayon that is shorter than this pencil.

1. What did you notice when we were looking at the pencils? (Note: Guide discussion to focus on the importance of proper endpoint alignment.)
2. What did you notice when we were comparing the strings? (Note: Guide discussion to focus on conservation of length with respect to orientation and movement.)
3. How did you know which paper strip on your problem set was longer than the other?
4. How did you decide which one was shorter than the other?
5. Explain to your partner how you were able to draw the flower taller than the vase. Did your partner think the same way?
6. When we started our lesson, we thought about how we might compare things. What were we comparing today, how heavy something is, how long something is, how many of something there are, or how much space something takes up?

Lesson 1 Homework

Draw 3 more flowers that are shorter than these flowers. Count how many flowers you have now. Write the number in the box.

Draw 2 more ladybugs that are taller than these. Count how many ladybugs you have now. Write the number in the box.
