Unit 3 Comparison of Length, Weight, Capacity, and
Numbers to 10 Kindergarten Math 


Description: Students begin to experiment with
comparison of length, weight, and capacity.
Students first learn to identify the attribute being compared, moving
away from nonspecific language such as “bigger” to “longer than”, “heavier
than”, “longer than”, etc. The terms
“more” and “less” become increasingly abstract, “7 is 2 more than 5” is more
abstract than “Jim is taller than John”.

Understandings: ·
Students
classify objects into given categories, count the number of objects in each
category, and sort the categories by count. ·
Students
apply counting and cardinality to objects in a set and write the corresponding
numeral 11 – 20. ·
Students
identify whether the number of objects in one group is greater than, less
than, or equal to the number of objects in another group by using matching
and counting strategies. ·
Students
describe measurable attributes of objects such as length and weight and can
describe several measureable attributes of a single object. 
Essential Questions: ·
How
do we count? Why do we count? ·
Is
there more than one way to count? ·
How
do we classify and group things? ·
Why
is it important for me to think in numbers? ·
How
do I show my thinking in different ways?
