Today’s lesson continues to look at converting measures.

This video lesson is about pounds. Pounds is another unit of measurement for mass. It is an older unit of measurement that used to be used a lot more than it is now. Have a chat with an adult about pounds, maybe an older family member like a grandparent.

Everyone should watch all the video as usual and  then choose whether to do the activity (SPICY/HOT) or selcet the Mild activity.

SPICY/ HOT

Activity from the video

MILD

Find some food packages and tins with different masses measured in grams such as cereal, biscuits, tins.

200g + 500g = 700g

Now make some subtractions e.g.

500g -400g =100g

Next challenge:

Can you find some that would add up to make 1 kilogram?

For example:

200g + 400g +400g = 1 kilogram

See how many different ways you can make additions to make 1 kilogram (1,000 grams).

For example:

1,200g – 200g =1,ooog = 1kg
