Year 2 Measurements - Units

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.

Children in Year 1 are exposed to and expected to use the appropriate standard units of measurement for height (cm/m), weight (g/kg), temperature (oC) and capacity (ml/l). This quiz will help them to become familiar with the appropriate units to use for each measurement.
