I created this activity for my students to complete during our 1st grade measurement unit. Our curriculum asks that students be able to line objects up and determine if they are "shorter than or longer than" the object it is being compared against.
Your students will love comparing lengths of objects with this engaging activity!
Directions: Print out the PDF file. I suggest blowing this up on 11 x 17 paper, but it is just as effective on regular 8 x 11 paper. Whatever the case, make a class set and distribute a stapled set to each student in your class. Students are expected to cut out the objects, compare them to the 4 snap cubes at the top of the page, and then sort them to the corresponding "longer than 4 cubes" or "shorter than 4 cubes" category.
