Measuring using formal units

Today we explored measurement.
We used measuring tapes to measure the heigh, circumference and diameter of cans.
We then calculated how many cans high we are. We had to use our knowledge of decimals to show our height as meters and centimetres. Rohan is 1.38 m tall.
Our next task was to calculate how tall a tower using all our 36 cans would be.
Watch this space to see what happens next to the cans.
