6:01 Using scale to find distance
Research the states that gave us our prime ministers and complete the table. Write the distances on the map represented by the key. Draw a line to represent stated kilometres. Estimate width of Australia. How far were electorates from Canberra? How far were flying distances from Canberra to given cities? Complete the time line for prime ministers.
6:02 Measurement
Match each measuring instrument to the units that it could measure. Match the label to the units used to measure it (strands of measurement). Convert units of measurement. Choose the appropriate measuring device and unit of measurement.
6:03 mm, cm, m and km
Write the abbreviation for each unit of length. Write the unit used to measure each object in its abbreviated form. Measure the length of each line in mm and cm. What would be their total length? Estimate and measure the thicknesses of objects listed. estimate distances on the farm plan.
6:03E Units of length
Extension page. Use the abbreviations mm, cm, m, km to complete each sentence. Estimate. List things that could fit the measurements given. Change cm to m. Change mm to cm to m, using rules for dividing by 10 and 1000. How many mm in a cm? m?
6:04 Perimeter
On the 1 cm grid draw shapes with given measurements. Find the perimeters. Colour the answer for the perimeter of the rectangles described. Measure the length of sides to nearest mm and find perimeter. Draw a rectangle with given side lengths. Find the perimeter of each shape by measuring in mm or cm.
6:04E Perimeter
Extension page. Find the perimeter of each shape. Find a quicker way. Use symmetry to find perimeter. Draw a shape with the same perimeter.
6:05 Metres and kilometres
Complete the table of distances and answer questions. Study golf course plan and answer questions about distances. Convert m to km using 3 decimal places.
6:06 Clone of Estimating longer distances
Use given method to estimate distances and check using a trundle wheel. Estimate distances on a street map. On a street directory page copy, use the scale and a pair of compasses to make a half km radius around your school. Answer questions.
6:06C Using scale for distance
Use the scale to answer questions. Complete the table by using the grid. Estimate distance. Using a scale, draw a line from each dot to show given distances. Write the distances between locations on the map. If the scale was changed as suggested, what would happen to the map size?

Test of Length
6:07 Perimeter
Complete the table to find quick ways of finding perimeters of regular shapes. Write in missing measurements and solve problems. Make up a rule. Draw a square with given perimeter. Find perimeters.
6:08 Speed
Find the kilometres traveled in one hour, half an hour. Match the animals to the speeds by which they can move. How long would the given journeys take at the given speeds. Find the driver's average speed.
6:09 Speed and distance
Record how fast a driver can go in different zones. Complete the table to show how far the driver could travel in the given time, if traveling at 60km/h. How long would it take to travel the distances given? Find distances achieved by a jet plane at the given speed.
6:10 Length conversions
Make conversions between m and km or mm, cm and m. Look at the house plan and complete the table of measurements. Work out the scale used and estimate the perimeter to the nearest metre.
