Measure lengths indirectly and by iterating length units
1.MD.A.1 Order three objects by length; compare the lengths of two objects indirectly by using a third object.
Which is Longest?
Scoop and Order
1.MD.A.2 Express the length of an object as a whole number of length units, by laying multiple copies of a shorter object (the length unit) end to end; understand that the length measurement of an object is the number of same-size length units that span it with no gaps or overlaps. Limit to contexts where the object is being measured is spanned by a whole number of length units with no gaps or overlaps.
Tell and write time
1.MD.B.3 Tell and write time in hours and half-hours using analog and digital clocks
Represent and interpret data
1.MD.C.4 Organize, represent, and interpret data with up
to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data
points, how many in each category; and how many more or less are in one
category than another.
