Activity 1

Go around your house and look for objects to compare. Today I would like you to compare a group of objects by thinking about which is the ‘tallest’, ‘longest’ or ‘shortest’.

Have a look at the photos I took of things I found around my house.

I remembered to use the word ‘tallest’, ‘longest’ and ‘shortest’ when I compared them.

You can compare words too!

• Do you know a word longer than ‘elephant’?
• Do you know a word shorter than ‘duck”?

Have a look at the words below and answer the questions.

Which word is the shortest?

Which word is the longest?

Which word is the tallest?

Activity 3

When you are measuring things it would be more accurate if you have a common starting point.

Take a look at the Let’s Learn

Have a go yourself by measuring the rectangles below against the same starting point just like the fish. *Cut out the grey rectangles below and measure them against a start line to help you answer the questions. Use the line below that is being used to measure the fish.
