Today in mathematics, we are focusing on using kilograms or grams to weigh different amounts.
WALT: compare and describe practical problems for weight/mass
If you do not currently have access to these ingredients or a set of kitchen scales – please have a look at this website instead for a measuring activity online. https://www.ictgames.com/mobilePage/mostlyPostie/index.html
Follow my play dough recipe and use kitchen scales to measure the amounts in grams.
How many grams in 1 kilogram?
We have also been busy looking at measuring liquids and capacity – if you have a measuring jug at home, this would be a great recap for the children.
