Colour by Capacity
Use this teaching resource when teaching capacity and the terminology. Students will need to use their judgment to determine which containers in each row will hold the most and least capacity.
Use also as a pre or post assessment, as homework or in maths rotations.
Cut and Pasts Capacity Worksheet
Students cut out a variety of objects and organise them into pairs to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of capacity. Students will use their judgment to determine which objects hold more and which hold less than others.
Use this resource when teaching capacity or as a pre/post assessment. You could also use it for homework consolidation or in math rotations.
Measuring with my body worksheet
This template is ideal for classroom investigations, or as a homework task, when investigating the concept of measuring length. In a real world context, students use their body to compare and measure the length of objects around them, while using measurement terms and vocabulary such as; longer, shorter, taller and same length.
Measure the Room Worksheet
Use this template as a fun hands-on way for students to practise reading and recording measurements, using a ruler or tape measure.
- List objects in the first column.
- Estimate the length of each object in the second column.
- Measure the length of each object with a ruler or tape measure to find the actual measurement.
Students draw on their knowledge of informal comparisons and make judgments to estimate the length of objects before using a measuring tool to find the actual measurement.
Use as part of maths rotations, as partner work or as a homework task.
Heavy or Light cut and paste activity
A simple cut and paste sorting activity to get students classifying objects into heavy and light categories.
Students cut out the pictures at the bottom of the page and glue them into either the heavy of light column.
Heaver and Lighter Worksheet
A worksheet for students to make comparisons and judgements about objects and their mass.
Use this worksheet when exploring mathematical vocabulary, heavier and lighter. Students compare and make judgments about the mass of objects, using their knowledge and understanding of objects in real world context to classify objects as heavier or lighter than others.
