Learning About Length

Year 3 have been comparing units of measurement when finding the length of objects, they noticed a pattern between cm, mm and metres. We chose a card, measured string to that length (cm) then measured the string again using mm or metres. We then matched the correct measurement cards up.

    They did notice 100cm = 1m. Mrs Frost asked the children if they just needed to add zeros to convert cm to mm and m (1cm =10mm). Some of the children said ‘no’ and used a place value chart to show that if you have 1 in the units column and you add zeros, the answer is still 1.
