Direct Comparisons with Length

    We began by watching a Number Crew video about length and came up with our kid friendly definition of length. Then we used Twizzlers to make comparisons. We found items longer/shorter/the same as our Twizzler. We also ordered our Twizzlers by length at our tables.

    We read Jack and the Beanstalk. Then we drew beanstalks, cut them out and made comparisons with our partner. Students used comparative language to describe their beanstalks with their partners.

We read Arthur's Pet Business and then used our stuffed pets from home to compare length with our partner's.

We also made comparisons by finding things around our classroom that were longer, shorter, or the same as our foot after we read How Big is a Foot?.

Here is our anchor chart we worked all week to create.
