This page provides samples of 2nd Grade Measurement and Data Activities aligned with the Common Core State Standards. All activities are suitable for use in Math Centers, small group or whole class settings and are designed to provide opportunities for students to communicate their reasoning and mathematical thinking. All sample files are in PDF format. Sample activities listed in **blue** are available for immediate download. Activities listed in ****grey **are included in our **2nd Grade Math Centers** eBook.

**Measure and estimate lengths in standard units **

**2.MD.A.1 **Measure the length of an object by selecting and using
appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and
measuring tapes.**Sample Activities:Measuring PathsMeasuring with a Meter Stick**

**2.MD.A.2 ** Measure the length of an object twice, using length units
of different lengths for the two measurements; describe how the two
measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen.**Sample Activity:Measure it Twice**

** Measuring in Inches and Feet

** Measuring in Centimeters and Meters

**Sample Activities:**

Comparing Lengths in Centimeters

Gummy Worm Stretch**Also included**** in**** ****2nd Grade Math Centers:****** Are You A Square or a Rectangle?**** ****** Comparing Lengths in Meters** How Far Can You Jump?**

**Relate addition and subtraction to length**

**2.MD.B.5 **Use addition and subtraction within 100 to solve word
problems involving lengths that are given in the same units, e.g., by
using drawings (such as drawings of rulers) and equations with a symbol
for the unknown number to represent the problem.**Sample Activities:**

Length Word Problems

**2.MD.B.6** Represent whole numbers as lengths from 0 on a number line
diagram with equally spaced points corresponding to the numbers 0,1,2 …,
and represent whole-number sums and differences within 100 on a number
line diagram.**Included**** in**** ****2nd Grade Math Centers:**

** Jumping Frogs (ver. 1)

** Jumping Frogs (ver. 2)

**Work with time and money**

**2.MD.C.7 **Tell and write time from analog and digital clocks to the nearest five minutes, using a.m. and p.m.**Sample Activity:**Time Barrier Game

** Time Match (ver. 3 & 4)

** Time Bump (ver. 1-3)

** a.m. or p.m.?

**Represent and interpret data**

**2.MD.D.9 **Generate measurement data by measuring lengths of several
objects to the nearest whole unit, or by making repeated measurements of
the same object. Show the measurements by making a line plot, where the
horizontal scale is marked off in whole-number units.**Sample Activity:**

Measurement Line Plot

**2.MD.D.10** Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit
scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple
put-together, take-apart, and compare problems using information
presented in a bar graph.
