Ordering: Tallest, Longest, and
In this video, we will learn how to
directly compare more than two objects by length or height using the words tallest,
longest, and shortest.
When we compare height, we can use
the words tallest or shortest. When we compare the length of
objects, we can use the words longest or shortest. This snake is longer than the other
two snakes. And this snake is shorter. Let’s practice comparing objects by
length or height using the words tallest, longest, and shortest.
Which is the tallest? Is it the mouse, the giraffe, or
Let’s compare the heights of the
animals. This is the height of the mouse,
the giraffe, and the dog. The giraffe is taller than the
mouse. The giraffe is also taller than the
dog. So the giraffe is the tallest
Which animal is the shortest? Is it the cat, the zebra, or the
The cat is shorter than the zebra,
so is the skunk. The skunk is also shorter than the
cat. If the skunk is shorter than the
zebra and the cat, then the shortest animal must be the skunk. This animal is the shortest.
Which is the longest? Is it the school bus, the paper
clip, or the carrot?
We need to compare the lengths of
these objects to find the longest. This is the length of the school
bus, and this is the length of the paper clip. This is the length of the
carrot. The carrot is longer than the paper
clip. The school bus is longer than the
paper clip and the carrot. If the school bus is longer than
the paper clip and the carrot, then it’s the longest. So the school bus is the
What have we learned in this
video? We’ve learned how to compare height
and length using the words tallest, longest, and shortest.
