Summary: In preschool settings, learning takes place in informal situations, which can make it very challenging for preschool teachers to identify learning possibilities or “teachable moments”. Because children in preschool often deal with length in their daily life, many teachable moments can be identified in situations when children are comparing and measuring length. Fostering children’s competencies in the area of length in informal natural learning situations needs preschool teachers to have pedagogical content knowledge about comparing and measuring in order to “see” or perceive these competencies in children’s activities. This knowledge is the basis for identifying natural learning situations. Competencies required for comparing lengths indirectly will be analysed in this chapter.
