Understanding Length - Measuring with Cubes and Sticks

Understanding Length

“Because kindergarteners are just  beginning to make sense of what length is and how to describe how long something is, they will need many opportunities to measure different lengths with same-sized objects in order to make sense of the conventions of measuring.”








Students use cubes and craft sticks to measure and compare the lengths of shoes, strips of paper, and other objects.










From Investigations

“Students come to school with ideas about numbers, shapes, measurements, patterns, and data.






If given the opportunity to learn in an environment that stresses making sense of mathematics, students build upon the ideas they already have and learn about new mathematics they have never encountered.







Students learn that they are capable of having mathematical ideas, applying what they know to new situations, and thinking and reasoning about unfamiliar problems.”
