Converting Units of Measure Puzzles (Worksheets)
Converting Between Different Units of Measure Revision: 6 Hidden Word / Spot the Mistake Puzzles Worksheets (and solutions) for KS2 Maths / Numeracy (especially Year 5 and 6 - Y5 / Y6) and early KS3 (and equivalents). Conversion of metric units only: millimetres, centimetres, metres, kilometres, millilitres, litres, grams and kilograms. All puzzles are in PDF format. Early finishers love being challenged by them plus they make great collaborative starters too!

Includes a puzzle for each of the list below:

  • Converting Length (one-star, less challenging version)

  • Converting Length (two-star, more challenging)

  • Converting Volume / Capacity

  • Converting Weight (Mass)

  • Ordering Measurements

  • Converting Measurements for Mental Addition and Subtraction calculations

An engaging alternative to standard worksheets, these no-prep measurement puzzles make ideal starter, early finisher, revision or homework activities. They can be completed individually or in pairs / groups. They are similar to codebreaker puzzles, with a maths-related word to be revealed after converting, ordering, adding or subtracting the measurement. Each puzzle contains a grid. Pupils circle any boxes containing errors, then put together the letters from these boxes to reveal a maths word.

Pupils often forget or avoid checking their own work for errors so it’s great to get them carefully checking in these puzzles. Spotting common errors may help them remember to check their own work and help them avoid common errors themselves.

The range of puzzles in this resource is ideal for differentiation and / or to cater for a range of groups and classes across Key Stage 2 (KS2) and some early KS3. Hopefully they'll be helpful for your teaching over many years.

I hope your students enjoy using these puzzles. I would be grateful for a review if you get a spare moment.
