Common Core State Standards for Kindergarten: Measurement and Data

Describe and compare measurable attributes.


Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight. Describe several measurable attributes of a single object.


Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has “more of”/“less of” the attribute, and describe the difference. For example, directly compare the heights of two children and describe one child as taller/shorter.

Classify objects and count the number of objects in each category.


Classify objects into given categories; count the numbers of objects in each category and sort the categories by count.1
1 Limit category counts to be less than or equal to 10.
