Let children get to grips with measurement using these fun fictional problems


The hare and the tortoise

When the hare and the tortoise had a race, the tortoise won because the hare stopped to sleep on the journey. The tortoise walked from 9am until 10am to cover 1km, but wondered how far he would have walked by 12pm. The hare knew he could run 1km in half an hour.
