### Examples

*Example*: A piece of paper can be measured using paper clips.

### Clarifications

*Clarification 1:*Non-standard units of measurement are units that are not typically used, such as paper clips or colored tiles. To measure with non-standard units, students lay multiple copies of the same object end to end with no gaps or overlaps. The length is shown by the number of objects needed.

In this MEA, students will help pick a flower that will be the focus of the Spring Festival. They will practice counting pictures and representing the number of pictures with a written numeral.

## MFAS Formative Assessments

Students are asked to use cubes to determine the length of different sized edges of a book.

Students determine their heights determined by cutting a length of string to show this measurement. Then using snap cubes they measure the length of the string.

Note: The measurement of the string will extend past 20 units, use this task with students who demonstrate a readiness to go beyond the measurement of 20 units.

Students use color tiles to measure the lengths of two figures shown on the accompanying worksheet.
