Standards with the same topic and subject but for other grades
Volume is the measure of the capacity of a container.
Weight is a measure of the heaviness of an object.
Temperature is the degree of hotness or coldness of an object or environment.
Students need to identify the attribute that they are measuring (e.g., length, height, weight, temperature, volume) before they begin to measure.
Multiple hands-on experiences are needed to gain the ability to compare the attributes of objects.
Students develop conservation of measurement when they understand that the attributes do not change when the object is manipulated (e.g., a piece of string that is coiled maintains its length as it is straightened; the volume of water does not change when poured from a pitcher into a fish tank.)
Length is the distance between two points.
Height is the distance from the bottom or base of something to the top.
Time is the measure of an event from its beginning to end. Students could compare the difference between the time spent sliding down the slide versus the time spent walking around the school building.
Length is the distance between two points along a line.
