Measuring Weight: Expressing Weights

Lesson #2
Price: £2.99

This lesson encourages children to explore different ways of expressing the same weight by converting grams to kilograms (expressing the answer as a decimal), as well as expressing the amount using both kilograms and grams. There is also the challenge of re-arranging the digits of a number to create as many ways of expressing a weight as they can think of, including converting a weight from grams to kilograms and vice versa.

Lesson #3
Price: £2.99

The questions throughout the slides for this lesson get progressively harder as children work out how to add and subtract different weights, including weights with one decimal place and two weights that are expressed in different units of measurements. The slides show some different strategies for solving such problems, including using a number line, and vertical addition and subtraction. The independent learning activities have plenty of problems for children to solve, including solving problems involving animal weights!

Lesson #4
Price: £2.99

Now that children have some strategies under their belts to add and subtract weights, they can put their skills to the test as they solve a variety of word problems relating to length. There are a variety of problems for children to solve as a class on the slides (with explanations for how problems were solved if they get stuck) to prepare them for solving similar problems independently.
