Although we are metric we still use miles to measure car journeys. Most odd! Here are some routes to work out in miles.
Now some worksheets on measuring in kilometres. For those who like to convert, 1500 metres is about a mile, and 10 000 metres is roughly 6 miles.
Some word problems involving measurement and an interesting little investigation about the size of your head.
Place various lengths in order of size. A mixture of mm, cm, m and km.
Here we have activities on measuring with kilograms and litres. They are nicely linked as one litre of water weighs one kilogram and it would fit exactly into a 10x10x10 cm cube.
Estimate and measure how far it is round things, collect labels with metric units on and make sensible decisions about measurements.
Use a ruler to draw lines, accurate to the nearest half centimetre. (Note printers may print page at slightly different size to the original, depending on settings.)
What lengths are shown on these scale drawings of a ruler? Also reading weighing scales and measuring jugs. Not all the divisions are labelled which makes it harder.
Tricky reading of scales. look out for using halves.
Writing measurements, converting centimetres to metres, millimetres to centimetres etc.
Calendars are a good resource for maths and young children can find them quite tricky to understand.
Reading the time has always been a problem for many children. Here we read minutes past and minutes to the hour, with intervals of 5 minutes.
Read digital clocks and write the time in words, and vice versa.
Here we have some word problems and they are all about the time!
Use digital clock times to complete the sentences.
