The Year 3 Measurement program covers essential components from the Measurement and Geometry strand outlined in the Australian curriculum. Concepts covered include length, area, comparing and calculating volume and capacity, and how to read time on both digital and analog clocks.

Topics & Concepts We Cover

This learning program is made up of the following 5 topics, broken down into 34 concepts.

  • Measuring Length 6 concepts

    1. Recognise the need for a formal unit smaller than the centimetre to measure length.

    2. Use the millimetre as a unit to measure lengths to the nearest millimetre

    3. Recognise that there are 10 millimetres in one centimetre

    4. Complete word problems that include lengths and distances using metres, centimetres and millimetres

    5. Recognise that there are 100 centimetres in one metre

    6. Compare and order lengths and distances using metres and centimetres

  • Area 7 concepts

    1. Estimate, select and use appropriate uniform informal units to find the area of shapes and record using the type of unit used

    2. Recognise the need for a formal unit larger than the square centimetre to measure area

    3. Use a square metre to measure the areas of large rectangles (including squares)

    4. Recognise that an area of one square metre need not be a square

    5. Use efficient strategies for counting large numbers of square centimetres

    6. Recognise the need for the square centimetre as a formal unit to measure area

    7. Estimate then measure the areas of rectangles (including squares) in square centimetres using 1cm squared grid overlay

  • Measuring and Comparing Volume and Capacity 8 concepts

    1. Compare and order several objects based on capacity using appropriate uniform informal units. Record findings using drawings, numerals and words

    2. Recognise the need for formal unit of cubic centimetre to measure volume

    3. Use the litre as a unit to measure capacities to the nearest litre

    4. Recognise that one-litre containers may be a variety of shapes

    5. Compare and order several objects based on volume by counting the number of blocks used in the model

    6. Recognise the need for formal units to measure capacity

    7. Compare the volumes of two or more objects made from cubic-centimetre blocks

    8. Describe packing in terms of layers

  • Formal Measurement of Mass 4 concepts

    1. Recognise the need for a formal unit to measure mass, recognise abbreviation and associate with familiar objects

    2. Choose an appropriate uniform informal unit and use it to measure the mass of an object. Record by referring to the number and type of unit used.

    3. Use the kilogram as a unit to measure mass, using a pan balance

    4. Compare and order two or more objects by mass measured to the nearest kilogram

  • Analog and Digital Clocks 9 concepts

    1. Read digital clocks to the minute, including using the terms past and to. Record these in words

    2. Read and record on analog clocks to the quarter hour using the terms past and to

    3. Recognise the coordinated movements of the hands on an analog clock

    4. Describe the hands on a clock as turning in a clockwise direction

    5. Identify which hour has just passed when the hour hand is not pointing to a numeral

    6. Read and record on digital clocks to the quarter hour using the terms past and to

    7. Read analog clocks to the minute, including using the terms past and to. Record these in words

    8. Describe the position of the hands on a clock for quarter past and quarter to. Associate the numbers 3 and 9 with these.

    9. Use the terms hour, minute and second
