The main objectives of this lesson are to develop students' ability to compare heights using words like tall/taller or short/shorter and align objects for accurate comparison.
Task 2 engages students in height comparison by involving them in a magic trick where they have to determine who is taller. This activity emphasizes the importance of aligning objects for accurate comparison.
The optional Going Beyond section provides additional practice problems for students to reinforce the concept of comparing heights. Students are encouraged to draw and describe objects using words like longer than, taller than, and shorter than.
