Grade 2 Math: Measuring Objects Nov.

Goals/Key questions
-How to measure objects with the use of other manipulatives
-Understand terms of dimensions like length, width, and height
-compare and contrast objects of varied measurements
Connected to Gr 2 Mathematics measurements PofS:
SLO 2:​ ​ ​Relate the size of a unit of measure to the number of units (limited to nonstandard units) used
to measure length and mass (weight).
SLO 3: ​Compare and order objects by length, height, distance around and mass (weight), using
nonstandard units, and make statements of comparison.
