A great variety of activities suitable for a good range of year groups. Especially like the estimating activities as is SO difficult to convince children that a near(ish!) guess is good enough. The children I work with request the lifting challenge game repeatedly. Another triumph - highly recommend!
Any other games you can come up with would be very welcome.
What a pleasant surprise, to find this pack published! A Mass and Weight Pack is very welcome, as it has always seemed to me that this area is somewhat neglected, with resources difficult to come by. But this Teaching Pack fills the gap, and how! It has a very impressive variety of activities, display resources and explanations - both for metric and imperial - with lovely art work, fun activities, a board game, a guide...absolutely everything you need!
