Measurement

In Junior Hub 2 this week we have been learning about measurement-length.

After three years at school in contexts that require them to solve problems or model situations, students will be able to:
-measure lengths, areas, volumes or capacities, and weights of objects and the duration of events, using linear whole number scales and applying basic addition facts to standard units.
Learning Outcomes
  • estimate using metres and centimetres
  • measure to the nearest metre and centimetre
  • find objects that they estimate to be a 1cm, 10cm, 50cm and one metre long
  • measure lengths of approximately one metre to the nearest cm

After two years at school in contexts that require them to solve problems or model situations, students will be able to:
-compare the lengths, areas, volumes or capacities, and weights of objects and the durations of events, using self-chosen (non-standard) units of measurement.

Learning Outcomes
  • compare lengths from the same starting point
  • use materials to make a long or short construction
  • use materials to compare large and small areas
  • compare the length of two objects
  • select objects which are about the same length as a given object
  • order three or more objects by length
  • compare a group of objects by length
  • measure length with non-standard units
  • use measuring language to compare length, width, and height

  1. Flying paper planes was fun. My paper plane went 12 of my feet. My feet measure 22cm long. What is 12 x 22?
