Georgia Performance Standards:
- MKM1. Measurement. Students will group objects according to common properties such as longer/shorter, more/less, taller/shorter, and heavier/lighter.
- MKG2. Geometry. Students will understand basic spatial shapes
- MKP1. Process Standards. Students will solve problems. (using appropriate technology)
- M1M2. Measurement. Students will compare and/or order the length, height, weight, or capacity of two or more objects by using direct comparison or a nonstandard unit.
- M1G3. Geometry. Students will arrange and describe objects in space by proximity, position, and direction (near, far, below, above, up, down, behind, in front of, next to, and left or right of.)
- SKCS1. Students will be aware of the importance of curiosity, honesty, openness, and skepticism in science and will exhibit these traits in their own efforts to understand how the world works.
