A section of Karen's Program

Length MS2.1
Outcome

The student is able to:

Estimate, measure, compare and record lengths, distances and perimeters in millimetres, centimetres and metres.

The student:

  • estimates the length of two or more rows of trees, then measures using a tape measure
  • records these distances using correct notation
  • measures the height of trees: records in 'm', 'cm', 'mm', depending on age of tree, i.e. seedling, young tree, mature tree.
  • compares various tree heights in and around the school
  • measures and compares distances between trees
  • measures the perimeter bush tucker plantings, propagating hut, school grounds
  • uses appropriate devices for measuring eg 30 cm ruler for seedlings, metre ruler for taller trees, shadow and tape measure for larger trees
  • uses the 'mm', 'cm', 'm' units for measuring
  • measures tree growth in the appropriate season.
