LC: To be able to read and write length in metres.

Can you remember the measurement facts we learned on Monday?

How many mm in 1 cm?

How many cm in 1 m?

How many m in 1km?

1000 m  = 1 km       or       1 km = 1000m    



So    3000 m = 3 km    or         3km = 3000m


So     5000m = ____ km ?


What about      6 km = ___________ m?


Look at the problem.


19km = _________ m

Now use the chart below to change km and m to m.
