The Year 4 Measurement program covers the vital concepts of time, temperature, length, area, perimeter, volume and capacity.
Year 4 Measurement is aligned with outcomes from the Measurement and Geometry strand of the Australian curriculum. Year 4 Measurement provides opportunities for students to measure and compare temperatures, estimate the length of an object then check for accuracy, convert between kilograms and grams and kilometres and metres, and solve problems involving units of time.
This learning program is made up of the following 5 topics, broken down into 40 concepts.
Recognise the need for a formal unit smaller than the kilogram and that there are 1000 grams in one kilogram.
Recognise that there are 1000 grams in one kilogram
Use the gram as a unit to measure mass, using a scaled instrument
Associate gram measures with familiar objects
Compare two or more objects by mass measured in kilograms and grams
Interpret commonly used fractions of a kilogram, including 1/2, 1/4, 3/4 and relate these to the number of grams
Solve problems, including those involving commonly used fractions of a kilogram
Read and interpret simple timetables
Convert between units of time
Read and interpret simple timelines
Read and interpret simple calendars
Explore and use different notations to record the date
Solve simple time problems using appropriate strategies
Relate analog notation to digital notation for time
Use the terms hour, minute and second
Use am and pm notation/ Midday/ Midnight
Measure the areas of common two-dimensional shapes using a square centimetre grid overlay
Develop strategies for counting partial units in the total area of the shape
Measure the areas of irregular shapes using a square centimetres grid overlay
Compare two or more areas by informal means, both regular and irregular shapes
Recognise the need for the square centimetre as a formal unit to measure area
Estimate then measure the areas of rectangles (including squares) in square centimetres using 1cm squared grid overlay
Recognise that changing the shape of an object does not change the amount of water it displaces
Recognise the need for a formal unit smaller than the litre to measure capacity
Recognise that there are 1000 millilitres in one litre, convert between millilitres and litres
Relate the millilitre to familiar everyday containers and familiar informal units
Use the millilitre as a unit to measure capacity, using a device calibrated in millilitres
Compare and order the capacities of two or more containers measured in millilitres
Estimate the volume of a substance in a partially filled container from the information on the label detailing the contents
Compare the volumes of two or more objects by marking the change in water level when each is submerged in a container
Convert between metres, centimetres and millimetres
Use everyday language to describe temperature
Recognise the need for formal units to measure temperature
Use a thermometer to measure and compare temperatures to the nearest degree Celsius
Select and use an appropriate device to measure lengths and distances
Record lengths and distances using decimal notation to two decimal places
Select and use an appropriate unit to estimate, measure and compare lengths and distances
Recognise the features of a three-dimensional objects associated with length that can be measured
Use the term perimeter to describe the total distance around a two-dimensional shape
Estimate and measure the perimeters of two-dimensional shapes
