This week we are starting on our 'Measure' topic in Maths.

 

WALT: estimate and measure in centimetres (cm) and millimetres (mm) using a ruler.

 

For today’s lesson you will need a ruler (if you do not have one print off the printable ruler provided or use a tape measure if available.)

 

  1. Go through the learning video/ slides provided to check you understanding of how to read a ruler, how to estimate and how to practise deciding which unit of measure (cm or m) you would use to measure a certain item.
  2. Try measuring some items around your house. Estimate what their length is first.
  3. Complete the sheet provided by estimating and then measuring the lines OR if you do not have a printer ask an adult to draw some lines (cm and cm ½) for you in your book and have a go at estimating and then measuring them.  Present your work in a table.
