Class I - Maths: Length Weight Size

### In The Garden

#### Find The Following In The Figure Above

• The boy on the bicycle
• The dog
• The girl on the swing
• The tree

### Measuring Lengths

• Lengths can be measured using our hand span, foots pan, pace, and cubit.
• Look at the buildings below.
• We can see that the building in the second figure is shorter than the first building.

### Measuring Weight

• Weights can be measured by using a balance.
• We can notice that the heavier pan will go down.
• When the pans balance, the weight on both the pans is same.
• Using a weighing machine, we can measure the weight in kilogram(kg) and gram(g).
• For example, you can weigh your school bag, shoes, tiffin, etc using this weighing machine.

### Measuring With A Scale

• We can measure the length with a centimetre scale.
• Smaller lengths are measured in centimetres.
• We can easily measure the lengths of the smaller objects we use in the school like a pencil box, an eraser, a sharpener etc.

### Measuring Capacity

• We can use cups, mugs, small vessels, bottles etc, to measure the quantity of liquid. This is the way we measure the capacity of buckets.
• Look at the glass which contains more water and the one which contains less water.

The juice in the first glass is more than the second glass.

• If we look at the capacities of a bottle and a jug, a jug can hold 7 glasses of water and a bottle can hold 4 glasses of water. So, who has the more capacity?

We can easily say that the capacity of the jug is more than the bottle.

• Water takes the shape of the container it is put in Have a look at the figures below:

#### Measuring Cup

• Liquid is measured in litres (l).
• On measuring the capacity of liquid we can easily differentiate the difference in their litres.
• A bucket can hold more capacity of water than a bowl. Similarly,
• A cooking pot can hold less water than a cooking vessel.
