Students will use their knowledge of measurable attributes (length, weight, capacity) to compare two or more objects using one measurable trait or more than two measurable traits to compare if the objects have more, less, or equal amounts of the same measurable trait. For example, a student might compare a banana and an apple. The student is comparing the measurable trait of weight and finds the apple has a larger weight than the banana.
