Grade 3 - Measurement and Data

Standard 3.MD.1.4 - Practice finding the appropriate weight of various objects. Understand the approximate scale of different metric units.

Included Skills:

Students will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of measuring mass (g, kg) by
selecting and justifying referents for the units gram and kilogram (g, kg)
modelling and describing the relationship between the units gram and kilogram (g, kg)
estimating mass using referents
measuring and recording mass

- M04.05 Estimate the mass of a given object using personal referents.
- M04.06 Measure, using a balance scale, and record the mass of given everyday objects using the units gram (g) and kilogram (kg).
- M04.07 Provide examples of 3-D objects that have a mass of approximately 1 g, 100 g, and 1 kg.
- M04.08 Determine the mass of two given similar objects with different masses and explain the results.
- M04.09 Determine the mass of an object, change its shape, re-measure its mass and explain the results.
