Comparison of Lengths, Weights & Capacities

Comparing, converting and ordering length, weight, volume in km, m, kg, g, l, ml from the least to greatest and vice versa.

Mapped to CCSS Section# 2.MD.A.3, 4.MD.A.1, 3.MD.A.2

Estimate lengths using units of inches, feet, centimeters, and meters.,Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two-column table. For example, know that 1 ft is 12 times as long as 1 in. Express the length of a 4 ft snake as 48 in. Generate a conversion table for feet and inches listing the number pairs (1, 12), (2, 24), (3, 36), …,Measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses of objects using standard units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), and liters (l). Add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve one-step word problems involving masses or volumes that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as a beaker with a measurement scale) to represent the problem.
