Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Grade(s) K resources related to the following standard:
Measurement and Data
Describe and compare measurable attributes.
2. 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. For example, directly compare the heights of two children and describe one child as taller/shorter.

In this 5-lesson unit primary students identify attributes of buttons and other objects in their classrooms. Throughout the unit students learn to collect data about objects, display the data (Venn diagrams, pictographs, and bar graphs), and analyze the data to determine what this tells us about buttons and/or other objects. Each of the five lesson plans includes necessary student/class worksheets, questions for students, extension ideas, and assessment ideas. Lessons 2 and 3 reference stories that are an important part of the skill development: "The Button Box" by Margarette Reid and "The Elves and the Shoemaker" story.

This interactive Flash applet helps students learn to compare and order objects according to size and weight attributes. The text and voice prompts ask students to compare three objects to find the longest, tallest, shortest, and so on. It then asks them to place three objects in a specified order, such as narrowest to widest. Correct responses are rewarded with a cheer and a summary of the results. One concern for users might be the British accents of the readers.

In this lesson plan students learn to create bar graphs using unifix cubes, translate this representation to graph paper, and then compare the data that has been collected and displayed. Students are encouraged to make up their own questions about the data (favorite juice) and to practice with multiple sets of data. Sample questions for students and extension ideas are included. The lesson contains links to a PDF of graph paper and the Bar Grapher tool which is cataloged separately in this database.
