What a brilliant site you have!!! I love it, especially as it saves me hours and hours of hard work. Others who haven't found your site yet don't know what they are missing!

## Australia – Australian Curriculum

• ##### Measurement and Geometry
• Using units of measurement

• ACMMG061 – Measure, order and compare objects using familiar metric units of length, mass and capacity

## New Zealand – National Standards

• ##### 4.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 4.GM.1 – Measure the lengths, areas, volumes or capacities, weights, and temperatures of objects and the duration of events, reading scales to the nearest whole number and applying addition, subtraction, and simple multiplication to standard units

• ##### 5.GM – Geometry and measurement
• 5.GM.2 – Sort two- and three-dimensional shapes, considering the presence and/or absence of features simultaneously and justifying the decisions made

## United Kingdom – National Curriculum

• ##### Year 2 programme of study
• KS1.Y2.M – Measurement

• Pupils should be taught to:

• KS1.Y2.M.1 – Choose and use appropriate standard units to estimate and measure length/height in any direction (m/cm); mass (kg/g); temperature (°C); capacity (litres/ml) to the nearest appropriate unit, using rulers, scales, thermometers and measuring vessels

• ##### Year 3 programme of study
• KS2.Y3.M – Measurement

• Pupils should be taught to:

• KS2.Y3.M.1 – Measure, compare, add and subtract: lengths (m/cm/mm); mass (kg/g); volume/capacity (l/ml)

## United States – Common Core State Standards

• ##### 3.MD – Measurement & Data
• Mathematics

• 3.MD.2 – Measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses of objects using standard units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), and liters (l). (Excludes multiplicative comparison problems (problems involving notions of “times as much”; see Glossary, Table 2 http://www.corestandards.org/the-standards/mathematics/glossary/glossary/ ). Add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve one-step word problems involving masses or volumes that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as a beaker with a measurement scale) to represent the problem. (Excludes compound units such as cm3 and finding the geometric volume of a container.)
