Illustrate that the length of an object is the number of same-size units of length that, when laid end-to-end with no gaps or overlaps, reach from one end of the object to the other.
Measure the same object/distance with units of two different lengths and describe how and why the measurements differ.
Describe a length to the nearest whole unit using a number and a unit.
Use standard and nonstandard tools to identify volume/capacity. Compare and sort containers that hold more, less, or the same amount.
Use nonstandard and standard measuring tools to measure the length of objects to reinforce the continuous nature of linear measurement.
