Measurement Madness - cm mm Game

Description

Measurement Madness is a game that provides consolidation of converting centimetres to millimetres.

Curriculum Codes

AC9M4M01 9

Interpret unmarked and partial units when measuring and comparing attributes of length, mass, capacity, duration and temperature, using scaled and digital instruments and appropriate units

AC9M5M01 9

Choose appropriate metric units when measuring the length, mass and capacity of objects; use smaller units or a combination of units to obtain a more accurate measure

AC9M3M01 9

Identify which metric units are used to measure everyday items; use measurements of familiar items and known units to make estimates

AC9M6M01 9

Convert between common metric units of length, mass and capacity; choose and use decimal representations of metric measurements relevant to the context of a problem

AC9M3M02 9

Measure and compare objects using familiar metric units of length, mass and capacity, and instruments with labelled markings

I used this game with my Year 4 students who were having trouble with converting cm to mm and vice versus. The children played the game as a warm up activity for 3 days a week - within the first week most students had a better understanding of decimals - which transferred to their work when given real life measuring tasks.
