This fun game encourages your child to compare volumes using the language of measurement: full, empty, half full, quarter full, more and less.
Mr Elephant wants to collect the heavier objects and his friend Miss Mouse wants to collect the lighter objects. Can you help them?
Rulers at the ready! Before you measure your items, ask a grown up to estimate how many centimetres long each item will be, then estimate the length yourself, too. Whose estimate will be the closest?
Are you the tallest person in your family or the shortest? Are the items in your home taller or shorter than you? Let's do some measuring to find out!
Draw around your hand on the paper or card and cut it out. Use your cut-out hand to measure things around your house, like a toy, a cupboard door, your bed. Now ask a grown-up to draw around their hand and cut it out. Measure your objects again, using your grown-up’s hand instead of yours. What do you notice?
Using your ruler, draw a line joining the dots that are the same colour. Before you measure your line, estimate how long you think the line is, then measure the line with your ruler. How close was your estimate to the actual measurement?
Would you use a metre stick or a ruler to measure each of these items?
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?
