Maths KS1: Titch and Ted Learn About Mass and Volume (pt 4/6)

Ted is very easily distracted in the kitchen and when an order comes in for chocolate cake Titch knows that he will need some help.

Ted learns about the units we use to measure mass and volume. Together they use balance scales to measure in grams. Then they use a measuring jug to measure in millilitres.

Ted begins to understand the difference between millilitres and litres and grams and kilograms. He learns that 1000 grams weigh the same as 1 kilogram.

This clip is from the series Titch and Ted Do Maths.

Contains some scenes which could be imitated by younger viewers. Teacher review recommended prior to use in class.

Teacher Notes

You could use this as a starting point for activities measuring mass, volume and capacity.

Children might measure the capacity of different containers using measuring jugs or use scales to measure out ingredients.

Children could match units of measure to items or liquids we might measure with that unit. They might match units of measure to measuring equipment.

Children may begin to convert units of measure.
