all Weights and measurements worksheets
Can you tackle these tricky word problems? They are all about measurement...
On the grid, plot each set of coordinates then find the fourth coordinate to draw the shape given.
Can you find the perimeter of this shape? You’ll need to find the lengths of the two missing sides first. Then see if you can calculate the perimeter of this eight-sided shape? Finally, can you find the area of these shapes?
Do you remember the formula for calculating the volume of a cuboid? See if you can work out the volume of these cuboids, as well as their length, width and height.
Add the adjacent numbers together and write their sum in the circle above them.
Look at each of the measurements in the left-hand column. For each one, write its decimal representation.
Look at the measurements in the left-hand column. Can you convert them into the units of measurement given in the right-hand column?
Can you convert these from grams to kilograms then from kilograms to grams? Then see if you can answer the worded weight questions.
Can you convert these from centimetres to metres: then from metres to centimetres? Then see if you can answer the worded length questions.
Can you convert these from millilitres to litres then from litres to millilitres? Then see if you can answer the worded capacity questions.
Mary has weighed lots of different things on her kitchen scales. Look at the scales and write the weight of each object underneath.
Cut out these cards showing the weights of different things in Mary’s kitchen. Can you put them in order from lightest to heaviest?
Cut out all these cards showing the capacities of different things in Tom’s kitchen. Can you put them in order from smallest to largest?
Are you ready to do some calculations with weight? Weighing scales at the ready...
Ready for some calculations with length? Rulers at the ready...
Ready to do some calculations with capacity? Ready, steady...
Volume is the amount of 3D space that an object occupies. Calculate the number of cubes in each shape to work out the volume (measured in cubic centimetres, cm3).
This family are off on their holidays. They have driven all the way to France. They are used to checking their speed using miles but in France the road signs are in kilometres! Can you help them work out how fast they can drive by converting the kilometres into miles? Your answers can be approximate.
Look at these containers. Which do you think has the greatest volume? (Think about their real-life size by considering what is inside.) Put them in order from smallest to largest volume. Estimate the volume in cm3, then calculate the volume to see how accurate you were.
Look around your house and find five different containers (for example cereal boxes, tissue boxes, biscuit tins, DVD cases, etc.). Estimate each container’s volume in cm3 and put them in order from smallest volume to largest volume. Now calculate each container’s volume to see how accurate you were.
