# Year 2 Measurements - Estimating

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 6 and 7 in year 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with choosing and using appropriate standard units to estimate and measure length/height in any direction (m/cm), mass (kg/g), temperature (°C) and capacity (litres/ml) to the nearest appropriate unit.

Estimating measurements means being able to make a sensible guess as to a length, height, weight, temperature or capacity and choose the appropriate unit to do so. This quiz will help your child to choosing the appropriate units to measure different properties.
