Standards with the same topic and subject but for other grades
Students benefit from experiences that allow them to explore the relationship between the size of the unit of measurement and the number of units needed to measure the length of an object.
When measuring with U.S. Customary units, students should be able to measure to the nearest part of an inch (1/2,1/4,1/8), foot, or yard.
Benchmarks of common objects need to be established for one pound. Practical experience measuring the weight of familiar objects helps to establish benchmarks.
A physical or pictorial model can be used to represent the temperature measured using a real thermometer.
Estimate and measure the weight/mass of objects in both U.S. Customary and metric units (ounce, pound, gram, or kilogram) to the nearest appropriate measure, using a variety of measuring instruments. (b)
Identify different types of thermometers as instruments used to measure temperature.
Measurement involves comparing an attribute of an object to the same attribute of the unit of measurement (e.g., the length of a cube measures the length of a book; the weight of the cube measures the weight of the book).
Record the weight/mass of an object with the unit of measure (e.g., 24 grams). (b)
Students should measure the liquid volume of everyday objects in U.S. Customary units, including cups, pints, quarts, gallons, and record the volume including the appropriate unit of measure (e.g., 24 gallons).
The measurement of an object must include the unit of measure along with the number of iterations.
