Teaching standard measurement to 2nd Grade students builds on previously taught skills of non-standard measurements. This math concept is best learned with engaging and hands-on measurement activities. In this Math Made Fun unit, the introduction of standard measurements allows students to begin estimating how long or tall different items are in inches and centimeters. When students become comfortable and proficient in understanding and using these forms of measurement, they are able to transfer these skills to more complex data analysis.

**In this math unit on Measurement, students will learn to: **

* Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes.

* Measure the length of an object twice, using length units of different lengths for the two measurements.

* Describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen.

* Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters.

* Measure to determine how much longer one object is than another, expressing the length difference in terms of a standard length unit.

* Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve word problems involving lengths that are given in the same units.
