## Draft K-5 CCSS Progression on Geometric Measurement

This narrative document describes the progression of Geometric Measurement across the K-5 grade band. It is informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics. The document discusses the most important goals for elementary geometric measurement. Among those are recognizing measurable attributes, comparing, connecting with number, estimating, and differentiating linear measurement from area and volume.

This resource is included in the following PD Collection(s):
Introducing Measurement Concepts K-2This collection of resources is intended to help educators introduce measurement concepts to primary grade students. The resources assist in teaching the concepts of units of measurement, recognizing measurable attributes, comparing sizes, and estimating measurements. Videos, articles, instructor guides, lessons and unit plans are included. More measurement resources can be found in a companion classroom collection and in a second PD collection for grades 3-5.
Teaching Measurement in Grades 3-5This collection of resources is intended to help educators develop measurement skills and understanding in mathematical and real-world contexts. The resources assist in teaching selection of unit, comparing sizes, estimating, calculating elapsed time, and measuring length, angle, area, and volume. Resource types include videos, articles, instructor guides, lessons and unit plans. More measurement resources can be found in a companion classroom collection and in a second PD collection for grades K-2.
