A good activity for reviewing measurement and comparative vocabulary used in math problems. It requires a higher level of thinking to make the comparisons between items. Each task card has 4 items listed in random order and a descriptor. Students are required to reorder the items according to the descriptor.
To accomplish this task, students are required to make associations between given items and use general knowledge to place them in the correct order. The cards can be used with individuals or in small groups. One student can check other students with the answers that are provided
The set contains 36 task cards on 9 sheets. They are best if printed on cardstock. Each sheet has 4 cards with a front card and a back card side by side. Cut the horizontal lines and then fold on the vertical lines. This will create a double sided card which you can glue or laminate shut. The front card provides the list of words to place in order and the back side has the answer with the items ordered correctly.
I have used these with students in the 4th through 6th grade levels as some of my students are still having difficulty with these concepts.
The Common core addresses knowing measurement units within one system of units at the 4th grade level. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.MD.A.1
The common core addresses form and use of comparative and superlative adjectives and adverbs, and choosing between them depending on what is to be modified is addressed at the 3rd grade level. CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.3.1.G
