Estimating & Measuring
Get students outside to Estimate & Measure everything in their sight!
To begin with, students will be expected to give estimated measurements of outdoor objects such as the width of a park bench without using metric units.
Once they have estimated the size of different objects, you can then introduce them to metric units to find out the accurate measurement. After that, students can work out the conversation rate of their own unit vs a metric unit of measurement.
Documents can be found below and are suitable for KS3 & KS4 levels.
