Kindergarten Mathematics Module 3, Topic H

children at school

The module culminates with a series of three measurement and comparison exploration tasks. In Lesson 29, students compare volume by moving a constant amount of colored water between containers of different shapes. In Lesson 30, students use balls of clay that weigh the same amount, as measured in cubes on the balance scale, to make different sculptures. They see the various forms the same amount of clay can take. Students are challenged to draw a building or a tree in Lesson 31. They compare the height of their building to their peers’ and to a linking cube stick of 10. Students then arrange their buildings to make a classroom city. As they complete the lesson, they have a new awareness of the constructions in their community. In Module 2, they explored shapes; in Module 3, they explore the heights of those shapes. In the final lesson before the End-of-Module Assessment, students consider the different measurable attributes of single items such as a water bottle, a dropper, and a juice box and consider what tools they might use to measure those attributes.
