For the next two days you will have some questions to answer about scales. When answering the questions you will be expected to be able to read a scale on a measuring jug or a set of weighing scales.
You are likely to have measuring jugs or weighing scales in your kitchen. Why don't you find out the weight of some of the food items in your kitchen, such as an apple or an orange? Can you pour half a litre of water into a measuring jug? What is the capacity of a tea cup or a mug?
By actually weighing items or measuring the capacity of something, it is a great way to learn. You can even weigh items in the supermarket, such as the fruit and vegetables that your parents buy on the daily or weekly shop.
Please take note of the units of measure that are used.
1. Are you weighing in grams or kilograms?
2. Is the capacity measured in millilitres or litres?
