Standards Alignment
Common Core State Standards

Students will engage in various measurement activities in Cyberchase. They will explore concepts of measuring weight in Poddleville Identification, capacity in Pour the Score, volume in Wig Gels, and with this activity length. Students will use string to measure and compare lengths and circumferences of parts of their body. This will give children concrete experience with non-standard measurement and will give a comprehensive measurement experience. Aligned with Core Standards: K.MD.1 , K.MD.2 , 1.MD.1 , 1.MD.2

### Standards

Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight. Describe several measurable attributes of a single object.
Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has “more of”/“less of” the attribute, and describe the difference.
Order three objects by length; compare the lengths of two objects indirectly by using a third object.
Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps.
