Measure Length of Objects - 1st Grade Math
Measure the length of objects in terms of a smaller object by laying copies of the smaller object side by side. Use an inch marker to measure lengths in inches. Measuring using inch markers acts as building blocks for measuring with standard tools like a measurement scale (ruler) in the higher grades.
