# Zoo Height Contest

Children begin to understand concepts of measurement at an early age. Young students recognize when a classmate or sibling is taller or shorter. They notice a cookie that is bigger or smaller than the one they have. As students get older, they begin to use non-standard units of measurement such as hands or blocks to compare things in their environment.

In this worksheet video, the teacher and students measure the height of different jungle animals by counting non-standard units.  The teacher guides the students through each question and answers each one by counting the number of blocks that are stacked beside each animal.

Children learn wonderful vocabulary when measuring. Words such as taller, shorter, big, small, and wide are now used to describe objects in their world. Students compare and contrast and learn that objects can be measured in different ways!

This is a fun worksheet that provides practice for comparing height and measurement.

Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
