Friday 5th March


All morning


WALT: convert a unit of measurement from a smaller to larger unit and convert between different units of measurement.


Please watch the video that Mrs Ray has made. This is a very practical session today and you will need the following equipment/ingredients: 5 different sizes of containers, a measuring jug, some ingredients to make a smoothie or chocolate cookies.

Activity 1

  1. Get a measuring jug with an amount of water in it. By just looking, how much water would you estimate is in the jug?
  2. Now measure how much water is in the jug. Write down how much water is in the jug in l and ml.
  3. Estimate how much the water in the jug will fill each of the 5 containers you have in front of you. Mark on the jug with a whiteboard pen where you estimate the water will go to.
  4. Pour the water from the jug into each container and see how close your estimate was.



Activity 2

How large is your fist? What is the volume of your fist? How can you find out? Can you use a jug of water to help? What exactly is meant by a fist? Is it a fair test? Can a ruler measure volume? If so, how?

You will need to understand displacement. If you measure by displacement, the results will be in ml. You need to know that 1ml of water has a volume of 1cc. Therefore, every ml of water displaced represents 1cc of the object’s volume.


Activity 3

Make a smoothie or the cookies. You will need to convert the units of measurement so they are the same – for example g to oz or oz to g. 1 oz = 28g.

Smoothie recipe:

10oz frozen strawberries

280g frozen raspberries

50 ml water

0.3l milk

0.1lb oats

10tbsp yoghurt

2 tsp honey

You might want to half the quantities as this is to make a smoothie for a group of 4.


Cookie recipe (makes 12 cookies)
½ cup granulated sugar
165 g brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
4oz unsalted butter, melted
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
115g cups plain flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
4 oz milk chocolate chunks
110g dark chocolate chunks

Melt the butter, then mix all the ingredients together except the chocolate chunks. When mixed, add and mix in the chocolate chunks. Split into 12 balls, place on a baking tray and bake for approx 15 minutes at 180 degrees.
