Measure Length
2nd Grade


Alabama Course of Study Standards:
17

Measure the length of an object by selecting and using standard units of measurement shown on rulers, yardsticks,
meter sticks, or measuring tapes. 
Arizona Academic Standards:
2.MD.A.1

Measure the length of an object by selecting and using appropriate tools (e.g., ruler, meter stick, yardstick, measuring tape). 
Common Core State Standards:
Math.2.MD.1 or 2.MD.A.1
Tennessee Academic Standards:
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. 
Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE):
2.MDR.5.1

Construct simple measuring instruments using unit models. Compare unit models to rulers. 
North Carolina  Standard Course of Study:
2.MD.1

Measure the length of an object in standard units by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes. 
New York State Next Generation Learning Standards:
2.MD.1

Measure the length of an object to the nearest whole by selecting and using appropriate tools such as rulers, yardsticks, meter sticks, and measuring tapes. 
Alabama Course of Study Standards:
18

Measure objects with two different units, and describe how the two measurements relate to each other and the size
of the unit chosen. 
Arkansas Academic Standards:
2.MD.A.2

 Measure the length of an object twice with two different length units
 Describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen
For example: A desktop is measured in both centimeters and inches. Student compares the size
of the unit of measure and the number of those units.

Arizona Academic Standards:
2.MD.A.2

Measure the length of an object twice, using different standard length units for the two measurements; describe
how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen. Understand that depending on the size of the
unit, the number of units for the same length varies. 
Common Core State Standards:
Math.2.MD.2 or 2.MD.A.2
North Carolina  Standard Course of Study:
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. 
Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE):
2.MDR.5.2

Estimate and measure the length of an object or distance to the nearest whole unit using appropriate units and standard measuring tools 
New York State Next Generation Learning Standards:
2.MD.2

Measure the length of an object twice, using different "length units" for the two measurements; describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen. 
Tennessee Academic Standards:
2.MD.A.2

Measure the length of an object using two different units of measure and describe how the two measurements relate to the size of the unit chosen. 
Pennsylvania Core Standards:
CC.2.4.2.A.1

Measure and estimate lengths in standard units using appropriate tools 
Florida  Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking:
MA.2.M.1.1

Estimate and measure the length of an object to the nearest inch, foot, yard, centimeter or meter by selecting and using an appropriate tool. 
Florida  Benchmarks for Excellent Student Thinking:
MA.2.M.1.2

Measure the lengths of two objects using the same unit and determine the difference between their measurements 
Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE):
2.MDR.5.1

Construct simple measuring instruments
using unit models. Compare unit models
to rulers. 
Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE):
2.MDR.5.2

Estimate and measure the length of an
object or distance to the nearest whole
unit using appropriate units and standard
measuring tools. 
Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE):
2.MDR.5.3

Measure to determine how much longer
one object is than another and express
the length difference in terms of a
standardlength unit.
