#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we are going to learn how to change measurements into smaller units.

Things we need to know:

l = litre

ml = millilitre

There are 1,000 m in 1 km

To convert from km to m, we multiply by 1,000

There are 1,000 ml in 1 litre

To convert from ml to l, we multiply by 1,000

Example

Change the distance from kilometres into metres.

2.5 km = ____ metres

There are 1,000 m in 1 km, so we multiply by 1,000.

2.5 km = 2.5 x 1,000 = 2,500 m

Example 2

Change the measure from litres to millilitres

3 l  =  ____ ml

There are 1,000 ml in 1 l, so we multiply by 1,000.

3 l = 3 x 1,000 = 3,000 ml

Are you happy with this and ready to try some questions?
