In Maths we are studying Measurement. We began by listing items that are measured, we then wrote down what equipment and units are used to measure these items. We finally created our own classroom economy as a way to measure our behaviour.

WALT - Describe Measurement

Multistructural Outcome
Listing Ideas
What is measured?

Weather - Rainfall, wind, hours of sunlight, tides

Body - Height, Weight, Pulse

Clothing Size, Shoe sizes
Bank balance, credit, debt

Speed = Gigahertz, Megahertz, Data = Gigabytes, Terabytes, kilobytes, Screens = Pixel resolution, length eg. 32 inch

Speed = Kilometres per hour, Fuel measured in litres

Weight = Grams/Kilograms, Energy of food = Calories, Kilojoules

Square Metres, Number of rooms eg. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms

Scores measured in goals, runs, tries etc. Victories measured in wins versus losses and draws. Medals for first, second and third place

Knots, Kilometres per hour, hours of sunlight per day

Height = Feet, inches, CM, Metres. Weight = Stones, pounds, kilograms. Pulse = Beats per minute
