In this lesson, we will measure items with non standard units and estimate length.

In this lesson, we will estimate the length of objects and compare their length.

In this lesson, we will estimate the length of objects in centimetres.

In this lesson, we will be measuring objects with a ruler.

In this lesson, we will estimate and measure the length of an object. We will then compare the objects using the greater than and less than symbols.

In this lesson, we will carry out an investigation to see what we notice about the lengths of certain body parts.

In this lesson, we will measure curved lines and the longest line in a shape

In this lesson, we will work out the length of a mystery line and then draw it.

In this lesson, we will solve length word problems using a bar model.

In this lesson, we will consolidate what has been taught in this unit.
