This 51-page pdf document demonstrates the connections between the CCSS content standards and the mathematical practice standards. It is a compilation of research, standards from several states, instructional strategies, common misconceptions, and examples for each standard at the grade 2 level. It is intended to help teachers understand what each standard means in terms of what students must know and be able to do. Additional flip books are cataloged separately for grades K-1 and 3-5.

This page provides examples of 2nd Grade Measurement and Data activities aligned with the Common Core State Standards. A CCSS standard is stated and the possible activities are listed below and linked. All activities are suitable for use in Math Centers, small group, or whole class settings and are designed to elicit a range of responses and provide opportunities for students to communicate their reasoning and mathematical thinking. Instructions for each task are typed in large print and written in child-friendly language to enable students to work on activities independently after a brief introduction to the task. All files for 2nd Grade Measurement and Data Activities listed are in PDF format.

This narrative document describes the progression of Geometric Measurement across the K-5 grade band. It is informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics. The document discusses the most important goals for elementary geometric measurement. Among those are recognizing measurable attributes, comparing, connecting with number, estimating, and differentiating linear measurement from area and volume.

This collection of seasonal projects has students apply concepts from geometry, measurement and fractions to the guessing of pumpkin circumference and weight; the creation of jack-o-lanterns, Halloween masks, glyphs, and other autumnal artwork; and more. Measurement Man is constructed to display the unit conversions for measures of capacity. Instructions (pdf) are included. The page continues with other projects that have a Halloween theme, and mentions connections to resources from children's literature.

This activity gives students a chance to make estimates and comparisons of the measures of length (height) and capacity. It presents an image of a tiny elf next to a normal size mug. Students are asked to estimate the Little Man's height and compare it with that of other objects. Next, they are asked to estimate the height and volume of the Little Man's mug. The Teachers' Notes page includes suggestions for implementation, discussion questions, and ideas for extension and support.

This document provides descriptions and examples of what each Mathematics Common Core standard means a Grade Two student will know, understand and be able to do. This "unpacking" of the standards provides instructional guidelines and was developed to assist North Carolina educators teach the Mathematics Common Core (Standard Course of Study).

This article focuses on young students encountering the measurement of length. The article cites examples of key concepts in recognizing length as an attribute and in proper and improper ways to measure length. Conservation and additivity of length, standard and non-standard units, iteration, and the zero point are among the topics presented.

This activity helps students develop a sense of the relative size of quantities in time, length and mass. Learners rank their estimates of given measures in order from least to greatest and justify their decisions. The Teachers' Notes page includes suggestions for implementation, discussion questions, ideas for extension and support, printable cards (pdf), and a link to a related problem, "In Order" (cataloged separately). The solutions page shows that students used standard units of measure to make their comparisons.

In this lesson students combine mathematical procedures and scientific observation to learn more about pumpkins. In the activity students in cooperative groups search, suggest, question, predict, measure and estimate the number of seeds in a set of pumpkins. Notes for the facilitator teacher are included.
