Learn about measuring mass using non-standard measures.
This lesson includes:
- two slideshows
- two activities
Created in partnership with Twinkl.
Begin by taking a look at the slideshow to help you understand how to measure with non-standard units of measurements.
A balance scale has been set up in the classroom to compare the weights of different objects. Click through the slideshow to see how to balance the objects.
Have a look at this other slideshow to see another example of comparing the mass of different objects.
Use these activities to help further develop your understanding of measuring mass.
The first activity builds on using more non-standards units of measurements to compare the weights of different objects. This activity requires a helping hand from a parent or guardian.
Now, why not try creating your own playdough using a simple recipe? This activity is aimed to help you measure with standard units.
