Demonstrate understanding of the concept of length.

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. The Ruler Game - Learn To Read A Ruler (inches only - increments from inches to sixteenths)
Recognize and show which is larger/smaller, longer/shorter, taller/shorter, heavier/lighter or which holds more/holds less, when given two similar objects.
K 4.1 b
1. Heaviest to Lightest - [ designed for 1st grade ] Look at the figures on each line. Click once on the lightest object. Click twice on the heaviest object.

1. Estimate - (use as a whole class activity) Select a range, display tick marks and estimate before revealing the answer.
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. How Tall - Curious George and his friend want you to estimate how tall a variety of objects are in relation to other objects.
Distinguish between light and heavy objects.

3. Identifying Time to the Hour -
4. 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)
5. Time Quiz - practice half hour skills
6. Time To Go - tell time to the half hour [use this site for a whole class activity]
7. Time to the Hour - a concentration style matching game, match digital and analog clocks
