# Unit: Measures (1): Length and mass

## Lessons:

10 lessons

### To compare lengths and heights of objects

In this lesson we will be exploring labelling objects using the measurement vocabulary (star words).

### To measure lengths using non-standard units (Part 1)

In this lesson we will be exploring measuring a range of objects using non-standard units such as our hands.

### To measure lengths using non-standard units (Part 2)

In this lesson we will be exploring measuring a range of objects using non-standard units such as pencils, paper clips or lego bricks.

### To begin to understand standard units of length

In this lesson we will be beginning to use and understand standard units of measure, such as 1 metre. We will look at objects that are taller than 1 metre and objects that are shorter than 1 metre.

### To solve problems involving doubling and halving

In this lesson we will be finding double or half of a length

### To compare the mass of two objects

In this lesson we will be comparing the masses of two objects.

### To compare the mass of more than two objects

In this lesson we will be using balance scales to show when objects have the heaviest mass, the lightest mass or an equal amount of mass.

### To compare masses using non-standard units

In this lesson we will be using non-standard units to measure the mass of toys in the balance scales.

### To find the mass of objects in units

In this lesson we will be using balance scales and units to find out how much objects weigh.

### To experience standard units of mass

In this lesson we will be using 1 kg to compare the mass of household objects.
