4. 4. What do we use to measure things?<br />Our length, height and width measuring toolbox could include these units of measurement<br />Metres<br />Millimetres<br />Kilometres<br />
5. 5. How do we choose which one to use?<br />That’s a difficult question to answer<br />Usually you choose units that are going to make sense for the problem you are working out.<br />We tend to change to a bigger unit when it is going to take us a long time to measure something in the smaller unit<br />It takes practice and careful thinking to choose a measurement unit<br />

17. 17. More length practice<br />Go to the Rainforest Mathswebsite and complete the length activities there<br />Our username is: xxx<br />Our password is: xxx<br />Start at year 3 level on the length activities<br />Continue working on the length activities until we change mathematics activities.<br />
