Description: Looking at the historical context of the way things used to be measured gives us an understanding of some of the language still used today. We want pupils to imagine that they lived hundreds of years ago and that they need to do some measuring. We have left some squares blank for pupils to put in other ways of measuring.
Like many of our activities this one is designed to encourage children to research and produce further examples of tasks and more methods of measuring.

Learning Outcomes: Pupils will have gained an understanding of the different ways in which things can be measured.
