Length Year One 2017 Victorian Curriculum Success Criteria- Know, Understand, Do Novice Competent Expert Use direct and indirect comparisons to decide which is longer, heavier or holds more, and explain reasoning in everyday language (VCMMG078) Foundation Recognise objects of different length Use opposite terms to compare objects; for example, tall/ short Use language of approximation; for example, about, almost, nearly Describe measurement attributes of the same object; for example, tall, short Find objects clearly longer than or shorter than a given object Measure and compare the lengths, masses and capacities of pairs of objects using uniform informal units (VCMMG095) Year One Use language of comparison; for example, longer, shorter, wider, taller Describe lengths of objects using comparative terms; for example, longer, taller Identify objects of equal length Compare length of two objects using indirect methods; for example, using a string along two curved paths, to compare two lengths Estimate and measures using informal units such as paces for length, to compare the lengths of objects Find objects bigger/smaller/equal to a given object or unit of measure Compare and order several shapes and objects based on length, area, volume and capacity using appropriate uniform informal units (VCMMG115) Year Two Estimate and compare straight or curved objects to decide which is longer/shorter Order sets of objects by their length Distinguish the different length attributes of an object (length, width, height) Compare the length of objects by lining up the base Recognise the need to avoid gaps or overlaps when measuring Accurately measure the length, width and height of objects using informal uniform units Use ‘between’ to describe measurements; for example, the book’s width is between 7 and 8 hand spans Understand that the use of different attributes can lead to different results when ordering; for example, this jug is taller than that vase, but it holds less Measure, order and compare objects using familiar metric units of length, area, mass and capacity(VCMMG140) Year Three Make increasingly accurate estimates of measurements using informal units and standard units (centimetres and metres) Make estimations using personal units, such as pace length and arm span, and comparison with metres using formal units, such as metres and centimetres Make objects to a specified length using metres and centimetres Recognise and use standard metric measures in appropriate contexts.
