Strand: MEASUREMENT AND DATA (2.MD)

Measure and estimate lengths in standard units (Standards 2.MD.1–4) and relate addition and subtraction to length (Standards 2.MD.5–6). They work with time and money (Standards 2.MD.7–8). They represent and interpret data (Standards 2.MD.9–10).

This task could be used to introduce the idea of representing addition on the number line; the teacher could set up a number line on the board or floor so students can act out where the two amphibious friends end up.
• Graphing with Colors
This Teaching Channel video and lesson plan has students find colored squares around the room and then create a bar graph. (4 minutes)
• Growing Bean Plants
This task adds some rigor to this common activity, by collecting actual growth data, providing practice for students in measuring and recording length measurements.
• Hand Span Measures
This could be used as a class activity, or students could gather and plot data on separate line plots from different age groups.
• Histogram
This activity will help students understand histograms by allowing them to make their own.
• How Big is a Foot?
The purpose of this task is to understand the idea of a standard unit of measure and why we use them. It also reinforces the idea that we measure lengths by placing units end-to-end.
• How Tall are We?

• IXL Game: Making Change
This game helps second graders solve word problems involving dollar bills, quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies, using \$ and cents symbols appropriately. This is just one of many online games that supports the Utah Math core. Note: The IXL site requires subscription for unlimited use.
• Is it Possible?
This activity asks students to estimate distance, height, and length they could reach if working together.
• Jamir's Penny Jar
The purpose of this task is to help students articulate their addition strategies as in and would be most appropriately used once students have a solid understanding of coin values. It also provides a context where it makes sense to â€śskip count by 5s and 10sâ€ť for the combinations that involve more than one nickel or dime.
• Longest Walk
Given a map, students in this task locate two points and draw a line between them and then calculate the length of the line.
Students will find the value of money in piggy banks using the coins, cents, and dollars. They will then arrange the value on a number line.
• Measurement: What Is It?
This lesson is designed to give students an understanding of measurement and allow them to use various tools of measurement.
• Ordering Time
The purpose of this task is for students to practice reading time shown on both digital and analog clocks and to order a given set of times.
• Pet Shop
The purpose of the task is to use the given prices of stuffed animals at the â€śpet shopâ€ť to solve problems using money. The students need to use their coins or bills to help them solve each problem.
