# 1st Grade Measurement Skills Prior Standards Implementation

### Measurement

Compare and order objects according to length, capacity, and weight.
1.4.1 a
1. Heaviest to Lightest - compare objects by deciding which is heaviest and lightest
2. Poddle Weigh-In - Hacker has removed all of the weights from the Poddles, you must use the scales to estimate their correct weight.
3. Teaching Measures - Choose from three modules; length, mass, and capacity. Each category offers several activities for your large screen display as well as supporting worksheets.
Recognize the need for standard units of measurement.
1.4.1 b
Demonstrate understanding of the concept of length.
1.4.2 a

Measure and estimate length using a variety of nonstandard units.
1.4.2 b
1. Are We There Yet? - select appropriate unit of measure
2. Estimation of Length - this video lesson explains the difference between accurate measure and approximate measure, then gives your students the chance to make estimates based on a baseline.
3. Poddle Weigh-In - Hacker has removed all of the weights from the Poddles, you must use the scales to estimate their correct weight.
Use a ruler to measure a line segment to the nearest inch or centimeter.
1.4.2 c
1. Centimeters - to nearest whole number ( from FunBrain )
2. Centimeters - to half centimeter ( from FunBrain )
3. Inches - to nearest whole number ( from FunBrain )
4. Inches - to quarter inch ( from FunBrain )
5. Teaching Measures - Choose from three modules; length , mass, and capacity. Each category offers several activities for your large screen display as well as supporting worksheets.
6. The Ruler Game - Learn To Read A Ruler (inches only - increments from inches to sixteenths)
Use scales to weigh an object to nearest pound or kilogram.
1.4.2 d
1. Teaching Measures - Choose from three modules; length, mass , and capacity. Each category offers several activities for your large screen display as well as supporting worksheets.
Recognize that a calendar is a way of measuring time.
1.4.2 e
1. It's A Date - use a calendar [designed for third grade]
Mark specified days and dates on a calendar and describe the relationship between days and months.
1.4.2 f
Determine time to the nearest hour and half-hour, using a standard clock.
1.4.2 g
1. Analog Clock - (whole class activity) You call out a time and ask a student to set the clock.
2. Clock Craft - Make a simple paper clock that you can use to practice telling time
3. Clock Program - Start with either an analog or a digital clock, then set the other clock to the time given on the first clock.
4. Draw Hands - free worksheets from Math Slice, time intervals from 1 hour to one minute
5. Kid Klock - use pull down menus to select the time you would like to see on an analog clock
6. Identifying Time to the Hour
7. Stop the Clock - match digital time to analog clocks, or written time, by dragging the digital clocks, or written time | to the nearest hour | to the nearest half hour
8. Tell Time - free worksheets from Math Slice, time intervals from 1 hour to one minutes
9. Telling Time - Players must drag the digital displays to the matching analogue clock (telling time to the half-hour). All against the clock of course! Other times : ( fifteen minute increments ) ( five minute increments ) ( one minute increments ) - For whole class instruction there is a clock available (digital or analog) which can be advanced by increments)
10. Telling Time Practice - Drag the hands of the clock to show the correct time. (some of these may be a bit hard)
11. Time To Go - tell time to the half hour
12. Time to the Hour - a concentration style matching game, match digital and analog clocks
13. Time Quiz - Practice half hour skills
14. Worksheet Generator - Telling Time ; You decide on the variables; students tell the time or draw the hands on the clock face, time increments from half-hour to one minute, and answer sheet.
Compare units of time.
1.4.2 h
1. Match Spoken Time to Numerical Time - click on Play, listen to the time spoken then select the number that matches
Use a thermometer to measure temperature and determine the hotter/colder temperature by selecting the higher/lower column of two thermometers.
