L.O. To know what is used to measure length/height and temperature (remembering)
SC1- I can define length, height and temperature
SC2 – I can recall what we use to measure length/height and temperature
SC3 – I can recall the units of measure.
Write down what you think length, height and temperature means. Then look it up on the internet or ask Alexa/Siri (if you have one) to check if you are correct. Adjust your answer if you need to.
Do you remember when we used measuring scales to measure weight(mass) and a measuring jug to measure volume and capacity?
What do you think we use to measure length, height and temperature?
Write down what you think and then ask an adult or look up the answer on the internet to see if you are right.
Adjust your answer if you need to.
Match the units of measurement to the type of measurement and then look it up to see if you are correct:
Now, try to find out when we use the different units of measure. Why do we use centimetres instead of metres? When would we use metres instead of centimetres? Write this in your book.
Why do some people use Celsius and some people use Fahrenheit? Which is more commonly used in England? Write this in your book.
L.O. To understand how to measure length/height and temperature (understanding)
SC1 – I can explain how to use a ruler to measure in centimetres
SC2 – I can explain how to use a tape measure to measure in meters
SC3 – I can explain how to use a thermometer to measure in degrees.
Watch this video to find out how to use a ruler to measure in centimetres and a tape measure to measure in metres:
Now, create your own video to explain this clearly to someone else. If you have a ruler and a tape measure at home, use this to help you explain how to measure length and height. If you do not have these items, use the interactive ruler on:
and ask someone to film you explaining how to use it. You can then explain how you might measure in meters.
Watch this introduction on using thermometers:
Watch my video tutorial on reading different types of scales:
Then use this interactive thermometer and ask a parent to film you explaining how to use it:
Click on a few different ones to show that you know how to read it when the scales go up in different ways.
Then send your notes in your book & your videos to your teacher.
