#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we'll be practising converting one unit of measure to another.

There are many different measures we need to learn how to convert, but in this activity, we are going to concentrate on the measures below.

Things we need to know:

1,000 grams (g) = 1 kilogram (kg)

Grams and kilograms are measures of mass/weight.

1,000 millilitres (ml) = 1 litre (l)

Millilitres and litres are measures of volume/liquid.

1,000 metres (m) = 1 kilometre (km)

Metres and kilometres are measures of distance.

Top Tip: The prefix kilo means 1,000

Let's get started.

Example

How many metres are there in 5 km?

There are 1,000 metres in 1 km

To find 5 km we need to multiply 1,000 by 5.

5 x 1,000 = 5,000

There are 5,000 m in 5 km

Example 2

How many ml are there in 3.5 l?

We know that there are 1,000 ml in 1 l

In 3 l there will be 3 x 1,000 = 3,000 ml

0.5 = ½

Half of 1,000 = 500

3,000 m l + 500 ml = 3,500 ml

There are 3,500 ml in 3.5 l

Don't forget to add the correct unit of measure!

Now it's your turn to have a go!
