Measuring Length Metric Units of Measurement
Imperial Units of Measurement Millimetres (mm) Centimetres (cm) Metres (m) Kilometres (km) Inches Feet yards miles Most 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 19cm My dad is 6 foot 2 inches tall (6’ 2”) Newcastle is 16 miles away.

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 10km This digit is worth 100m. There are 10 of these in 1km This digit is worth 1m. There are 10 of these in 10 metres. This digit is worth 10km. 10km 1km 100m 10m 1m …and 1,000 metres in a kilometre!

Click on the question mark to find out the missing measurement.

Choosing Units of Measurement
Which unit of measurement would you use to measure these objects? Height of your friend The distance to your holiday destination The thickness of a book The length of a pencil The height of a building The distance to Manchester The length of my fingernail The length of the classroom Millimetres (mm) Centimetres (cm) Metres (m) Kilometres (km)

Capacity is measured in millilitres (ml).
Measuring Capacity Capacity 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 300ml A family bottle of lemonade contains 2 litres.

The area is how much space a shape takes up.
Calculating Area The area is how much space a shape takes up. This shape has an area of 12cm². This shape has an area of 20cm² (There are 20 ‘1cm’ squares inside)

Calculating Area 16cm² 16cm² 24cm² 14cm²
What is the area of each shape? Click on the shapes to reveal each answer. 14cm²

The quick way of calculating area is to multiply length x width.
8cm 4cm 2cm 16cm² 4cm 6cm 16cm² The quick way of calculating area is to multiply length x width. 4cm 24cm² Watch carefully, and you will also notice there is a quick way of calculating area.

The quick way of calculating area is to multiply length x width.
