Height and length recognition worksheets for children ages 3-5
Short, shorter, shortest are words used to measure both height and length. In this page we want your child to learn how to compare the difference in height and length of various objects. Throughout the exercises below, objects comparing both height and length are used.
Below is a balloon (demonstrating "short" from the height perspective), and a fish (demonstrating "short" from a length perspective). Both examples range from short to shortest.
Explain to your child the concept of short, shorter and shortest. Remember that many objects can be "shorter", but only one object can be the "shortest". Work through the exercises and the printable worksheet below.
Below is a girl, with hair in varying lengths. Ask your child to identify the girl with the shortest hair and to tick the box directly underneath.
Below are three snowmen, each with a hat that is a different height. Ask your child to tick the box directly under the snowman that has the shortest hat.
Below are three giraffes. Ask your child to tick the box directly under the giraffe that is the shortest.
Below are three goats on a mountain top. Ask your child to tick the box directly under the mountain that is the shortest.
Print out both worksheets below. The worksheet on the left is for your child to practise and learn "short" from the perspective of length. The worksheet on the right is to learn and practise "short" from the perspective of height.
