We are continuing with measurement when we return therefore:

Your project is to look at all the measurements you can see in the streets and towns around you.  This might be a road sign with a speed limit, or a sign telling you how far to the next exit (in km or miles).  Can you keep a diary of all the weird and wonderful measurements you can find.  You might also see measurements in shops, on sides of bottles and cans.  Make a list of all the things that you can see.  Prizes for the most WEIRD!

Complete the table in your homework books:


Object or sign Measurement in mm/km Measurement in miles Measurement in litres, millilitres or litres Measurement in different units (such as cups, teaspoons, pinches etc)
