Estimating and ordering mass- LA Year 5

Estimating and ordering mass- LA Year 5

I used this with a Lower Ability Year 5 class who were working more in line with the Year 4 curriculum. I bought these items from the supermarket and encouraged the children to estimate the mass of each item. I put the choices for the mass on the board for them to pick. A more able group may want to estimate without prompts.

Measurement homework.

Measurement homework.

Editable measurement homework. Use a ruler, weighing scales, a measuring jug/cups to find the answers to these questions. Some of the answers will be printed on the products. If you don’t have any scales, try to estimate the weight. If you don’t have a measuring jug, use a milk bottle, (which will hold a litre), and try to work it out).
