Kindergarten Measurement Longer Taller Shorter GameKindergarten Measuring to Compare Long Tall Short Game

Online Math Activity - Measuring Longer and Shorter

Help your kindergarten students become familiar with measurement concepts in this interactive measurement lesson from "I Know It." Children will decide "Which is shorter?" "Which is longer?" and "Which is taller?" Students will be presented with multiple choice questions and drag-and-drop questions in a colorful, kid-friendly, and engaging format.

If students need a little extra help solving a math problem, they can click on the "hint" button. They will be shown a pictorial clue to help them visualize which object is longer/taller or shorter. When students get an answer wrong, a detailed explanation page with a custom graphic will show them how to answer the question correctly, so they can learn from mistakes and improve throughout the lesson.

In this kindergarten measurement lesson, as with all I Know It lessons, several features help students make the most out of their math practice time. A progress-tracker shows students how many questions they have answered so far in the lesson. A score-tracker lets students see how many questions they have answered correctly. Plus, a speaker icon indicates the read-aloud feature, which allows students to hear the question read out loud to them in a clear voice.
