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

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

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

In this lesson, we will begin 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.

In this lesson, we will find double or half of a length

In this lesson, we will compare the masses of two objects.

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

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

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

In this lesson, we will use 1 kg to compare the mass of household objects.
