Discover our exciting new maths series that uses images as a creative stimulus
The aim of the following activities is to improve children’s measurement skills by placing problems in a real-life context, particularly by using real-life props and images to challenge and inspire. This includes choosing and using appropriate equipment, reading a range of scales accurately and measuring length, mass and capacity with increasing accuracy.
Begin the lesson by using one of the images on the Interactive resource ‘Maths in pictures’ available for all readers to start a discussion on measurement, before moving on to the following activities. After completing the activities, you could return to any points raised and discuss them further.
