Hands-On Measurement FREEBIE for Kindergarten

My kinders are learning about measurement this week. Today we were working on the Common Core standard K.MD.2 to describe and compare measurable attributes. If you’re a follower of the blog, you’ll know that I LOVE hands-on learning, but I also need to CHECK my students work to be certain that they grasped the concept. So, I created this fun activity page on comparing measurements for my students.

 FREE worksheet to compare lengths of objects

The finished productThis was SUCH an easy activity for them. All students received one copy of the worksheet and strips of 1″x6″ construction paper in 5 different colors. To complete the activity, my kindergarteners cut each strip into 2 parts (that were NOT equal). The 2 pieces were then compared and glued onto the appropriate side of the chart (shorter or longer). Easy right?!? It was also super-easy to check. And let’s face it, we all love to quickly get through that stack of papers to check during these last few weeks of school.

FREE shorter and longer page
You can download a FREE Shorter and Longer comparing measurements page from my TpT store. It’s a great first step as you begin a measurement unit in your classroom. Enjoy!

Hi, I'm Maria.

I’m a former kindergarten teacher turned work-from-home mom. I still love sharing ideas and resources to make teaching easier, so you can focus on what really matters in the classroom. When I’m not working on the blog, you’ll find me chasing kids around the house with a cold cup of coffee in my hand (some things never change even once you’re out of the classroom!)
