This week’s homework is Practice Makes Perfect.
I can measure things at home.
This homework requres children to measure lots of things around their home. They could measure length using a ruler or tape measure, mass (what most of us call weight!) of things using some kitchen scales or capacity (the space inside things) using a measuring jug and water.
Please use and record in metric measurements, so mm/cm/m, not inches/ft/yards, g/kg not oz/lbs etc.
Children could measure:
- their height
- the capacity of the smallest pan and the largest pan in your house
- the length of their bed
- how much a mug weighs
- the width of their finger
- the capacity of their bath (careful – it’ll take ages! Use cold water if you want to save energy!)
For an extra challenge, why not try to convert to another unit of measurement? If you’ve measured the length of your desk in cm for example, convert it to mm and m!
