This activity is about changing measurements into larger units.

Example

Change the mass from grams into kilograms.

2,500 grams = ______ kilograms There are 1,000 g in 1 kg, so we divide by 1,000.

2,500 g = 2,500 ÷ 1,000 = 2.5 kg

To convert:

Grams to kilograms, divide by 1,000

Metres to kilometres, divide by 1,000

Centimetres to metres, divide by 100  (watch out for this one - we divide by 100, not 1,000!)
