Unit 3, Lesson 1# Compare lengths using taller than and shorter than with aligned and non-aligned endpoints.

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students work to describe and compare measurable attributes. They begin by identifying the attribute of length by determining that a book and a ribbon can be compared in different ways: as longer than, heavier than, or taking up more space. This occurs within the natural context of the lesson, which then proceeds to comparing length and height when endpoints are aligned and not aligned.
