Select appropriate tool and unit of measurement to measure an object (ruler or yard stick, inches or feet).
- Identify the shorter or longer unit of measurement (e.g., inches are smaller than feet).
- Understand that the appropriate unit of measure is the one that will require fewer units to measure the object (Ex: Select inches to measure the length of a pencil. Select feet to measure the length of the classroom).
- Identify which tool is appropriate to measure an object (Ex: a ruler for the length of a pencil, a yardstick for the length of a classroom).
- Match the visual representation of the object to the appropriate tool for measuring its length (Ex: match the ruler to the pencil, match the yardstick to the picture of the classroom).
- Understand the following concepts and vocabulary of inches, feet, ruler, yardstick, measurement, length, tool, and unit.
