Cubirocks

Your challenge is to help Stella, Oska and Pablo work out the volume of differently sized cubirocks. You will use small, medium or large cubes to measure with. See if you can find a number pattern to help you. Goodluck! (Thanks to Wendy from Sydney for suggesting this activity)

Harbour Measurements

Using both length and weight help Molly decide what to load on the ship. 3 levels of difficulty.

Squirt! Level 1: Fill, squirt, count and empty two containers NEW!

Alien Cookbook - Choose the Measure

1st of 3 games. Click and drag the right number of eggs to the mixing bowl. Click on the correct measure when the arrow points to an ingredient on the recipe. Click on the 'MIX' button to check your answers. (Thanks to Max who helped me find the game!)

Best Measure

Match the pairs up correctly. Eg Paperclip = 1 gram. Accuracy counts! 1000 point bonus if you get all right in the 6 rounds.

Matching Math - Metric Weight

Match the metric conversion as quick as you can. We don't use the 'Centigram' in Australia but you'll get the idea very quickly. Goodluck!

Scale Reader

Can you read scales? Try this scales reader which includes weight in grams and kilograms.

Seesaw Logic

Which object is the heaviest? It seems really easy at first then you really have to think logically. Many levels.

Squirt! Level 2: Fill, squirt, count and empty two containers NEW!

By filling and squirting, find out the relationship between the capacity of containers of different shapes and sizes.

Back to TopYear 4 - Use scaled instruments to measure and compare lengths, masses, capacities and temperatures.

Alien Cookbook - Use a Measuring Scale

2nd of 3 games. Click and drag the eggs into the mixing bowl. Click on the packet or jug until you have added the correct amount to the mixing bowl. Click on the 'MIX' button to check your answers. (Thanks Holly for helping find this game)
