I have planned a practical lesson to convert between imperial and metric units for my Year 5 class. This is to achieve the aims of the New National Curriculum (2013) which states children should be able to understand approximate equivalences.
We will set up a weight house, design centre, how tall? station, and bottling plant to investigate capacity, mass and length!
I have also uploaded the lesson plan and resources in my shop so take a look - they're free too!
I hope you and your class enjoy the activity!
