LESSON 1: MEASURING ANGLES WITH A PROTRACTOR
We can measure angles using an instrument known as a protractor. A protractor is an instrument used to measure the size of an angles in degree.
LESSON 2 : WEIGHT (Estimating and Measuring Weight)
Weight refers to how heavy or light an object is. The basic unit of weight is gram. Small weights like paper clip, a pen or pencil are measured in milligrams and grams. Heavy weights are measured in kilograms e.g our weight, a bag of cement and rice. Heavier objects like truck, train are measured in tonnes.
LESSON 3: CALCULATING WEIGHT IN MILLIGRAMS AND GRAMS
Milligram is a unit of mass equal to one-thousandth of a gram. 1000 milligrams = 1 gram
LESSON 4 : CALCULATING WEIGHT IN GRAMS AND KILOGRAMS
For every kilogram, there are 1000 grams. That means that the ratio between kilograms and grams is 1:1000.
LESSON 5: MEASURING HEIGHT IN CENTIMETRES, METRES AND FEET
Height is the vertical distance from the top to the base of an object. It is often used to tell how tall someone or something is.
