What a brilliant site you have!!! I love it, especially as it saves me hours and hours of hard work. Others who haven't found your site yet don't know what they are missing!

## United States – Common Core State Standards

• ##### K.MD – Measurement & Data
• Mathematics

• K.MD.1 – Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight. Describe several measurable attributes of a single object.

• ##### 1.MD – Measurement & Data
• Mathematics

• 1.MD.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 being measured is spanned by a whole number of length units with no gaps or overlaps.

• ##### 2.MD – Measurement & Data
• Mathematics

• 2.MD.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.

## Australia – Australian Curriculum

• ##### Measurement and Geometry
• Using units of measurement

• ACMMG019 – Measure and compare the lengths and capacities of pairs of objects using uniform informal units

## New Zealand – National Standards

• ##### 2.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 2.GM.1 – Compare the lengths, areas, volumes or capacities, and weights of objects and the durations of events, using self-chosen units of measurement

• ##### 3.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 3.GM.1 – Measure the lengths, areas, volumes or capacities, and weights of objects and the duration of events, using linear whole-number scales and applying basic addition facts to standard units

## United Kingdom – National Curriculum

• ##### Year 1 programme of study
• KS1.Y1.M – Measurement

• Pupils should be taught to:

• KS1.Y1.M.1 – Compare, describe and solve practical problems for:

• KS1.Y1.M.1.a: lengths and heights [for example, long/short, longer/shorter, tall/short, double/half]

• KS1.Y1.M.2 – Measure and begin to record the following:
