6:MG09 Kilograms and tonnes
Complete the problems, if 1 tonne = 1 000 kilograms. Change each mass from kilograms to tonnes, and tonnes to kilograms. Discuss what we would measure in tonnes and how this would be done. Estimate how many students would weigh 1 tonne altogether. Circle the heavier mass.
6:MG09C Grams and kilograms
Change each measurement to grams. Match each item to its mass. Write the masses in order, from lightest to heaviest. Add the masses in grams. Find the total mass in kilograms and grams.
6:MG10 Mass
Write the unit used to measure each mass - g, kg, t. Which type of scales would you use to find each mass? Circle the most reasonable estimate for the mass of each object.
6:MG11 Mass
Match each fraction kg to each measurement in g and add. Write each fraction of a tonne in kilograms. Match the masses in kg to the masses in t. Convert between g, kg and t.
6:MG11C Milligrams
To measure parts of a gram we use milligrams.
6:MG27 Grams, kilograms & tonnes
Circle the masses needed to balance the objects then find the total mass. Convert between masses- g, kg and t. Find the masses.
6:MG27C Net mass
Write the gross mass of each object. Match the container and contents. Find each net mass.
6:MG28 Mass and volume of water
