Year 2 – Palm Class measure up well to the challenges!


We have been investigating different ways to use measure in Palm Class. 

We used thermometers, weighing scales, rulers, metre sticks and measuring jugs in our practical investigations. 

We collaborated together, to identify and read different measurement scales on the equipment. 

Kg, g, m, cm, mm, ml, l and celsius… What did we use these for?

Tell someone at home about these units of measurement and when we used them to measure and compare length, capacity and mass. 

What is the capacity of the bottle below? Explain your answer to someone at home.
