2 Measuring Length Metric Units of Measurement Imperial Units of MeasurementMillimetres (mm)Centimetres (cm)Metres (m)Kilometres (km)InchesFeetyardsmilesMost things we now measure in metric units. However for distances to towns and people’s heights we tend to still use imperial measurements.The length of my pencil is 19cmMy dad is 6 foot 2 inches tall (6’ 2”)Newcastle is 16 miles away.
3 Understanding Length 10km 1km 100m 10m 1m This digit is worth 10m. There are 10 of these in 100m.This digit is worth 1km. There are 10 of these in 10kmThis digit is worth 100m. There are 10 of these in 1kmThis digit is worth 1m. There are 10 of these in 10 metres.This digit is worth 10km.10km1km100m10m1m…and 1,000 metres in a kilometre!
4 Click on the question mark to find out the missing measurement. Understanding LengthRemember:10mm = 1cm100cm = 1 metre1,000 metres = 1kmClick on the question mark to find out the missing measurement.mmcmmetres50mm5cm0.05m20mm2cm0.02m150mm15cm0.15m2,100mm210cm2.1m1,500mm150cm1.5mmetreskm250m0.25km2,150m2.15km1,750m1.75km150m0.15km5,200m5.2km???????????

14 Choosing Units of Measurement Which unit of measurement would you use to measure these objects?Height of your friendThe distance to your holiday destinationThe thickness of a bookThe length of a pencilThe height of a buildingThe distance to ManchesterThe length of my fingernailThe length of the classroomMillimetres (mm)Centimetres (cm)Metres (m)Kilometres (km)
15 Capacity is measured in millilitres (ml). Measuring CapacityCapacity is measured in millilitres (ml).There are 1,000ml in a litre.Click on the object to see how many ml everyday objects use.A jug contains 1,000ml (1 litre)A teaspoon of medicine contains 5ml.A ‘pint’ of milk contains 568ml of milk.A soft drink can contains 300mlA family bottle of lemonade contains 2 litres.
