Use these resources to teach your class about converting from miles to kilometres.
Print, cut out and laminate the conversion matching cards. You can attach these to lolly sticks if you like. Keep the miles cards and hide the kilometre cards around the class or yard.
Give the children a little Porsche each with reminders about converting miles and kilometres, and they can stick it in their book.
Then show the children the ‘Converting miles to kilometres’ Powerpoint and help them to convert the measures.
After this, give the children the 5 quick check questions which they answer on the sheet and stick in their book.
If they understand how to convert, then give them the miles to km table to stick in their book, or have on a clip board. Also, give the group the miles cards. They must look at the miles and convert it to km, then run and find the card which matches their answer. They continue with this until they have all of the cards matched up. Then they check with the teacher and mark their answers.
I hope that your class have fun with this activity—my class really enjoy active Maths sessions.
