The 11 reproducible worksheets in this product constitute Unit 2 in the MathQuest 1 workbook. This unit focuses on manipulating concrete materials and using pictorial matching to help students identify the longer/shorter of two objects. Students learn how to sequence objects by length, height, weight and capacity. They also learn how identify and extend patterns in problem solving situations.
As Piaget discovered in his experiments, children often have difficulty in determining which of two objects is longer if the objects are not matched at one end. In this unit, children align objects to compare their lengths, fill containers to compare their capacities and read two-pan balances to compare masses. The teaching of measurement is embedded in the context of the nursery rhyme "Jack be Nimble." The height of the candlestick is vitally important in planning a successful leap!
