Short, Shorter, Shortest

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.
