METRIC LENGTH
Length is a measurement that tells how long or wide something is. 
In the olden days people measure length of objects by using various parts of the body such as arm, foot, palms etc. But all these does not give accurate measurements. 
Today people use instruments like ruler, tape rule, meter tape to accurately measure the length of objects. The standard unit of length measurements s metre (m) 

CONVERSION OF METRIC LENGTH 
10 millimetres (mm) = 1 centimeter (cm) 
10 centimeters = 1 decimetre (dm) 
10dm = 1 meter (m) 
1000mm = 1m
100cm = 1m
1000m = 1 kilometer (km) 

Examples


Solutions 
a. The length of line a is 6cm
b. The length of line b is 2.5cm

 Pupils should be Able to ;
Define length, find the various units of measuring length and also use a ruler to measure length of certain objects.

 Begin the lesson by  showing pupils a video about how length is being measured. 
 
STARTER
The pupils are given a Worksheet which contains different lines, object and animals. Then with the aid of ruler they are to measure their lengths.

ADDITION OF METRIC LENGTH
Addition of metric length is similar to basic addition arithmetic. But note:
10mm = 1cm, 100cm = 1m, 1000m = 1km
EXAMPLES
1. Add 10cm 5mm to 15cm 7mm and  12cm 5mm
  
Solution      
               

2. 5m 15cm 7mm + 4m 48cm 9mm + 6m 65cm 8mm
Solution
              

PLENARY 
Pupils should be able to add various units of lengths together.

STARTER
Start the lesson by asking them questions on units of length and perform basic addition operation.

EXAMPLES
1. Subtract 5cm 9mm from 9cm 6mm
    Solution
              


PLENARY 
Pupils should be able  to subtract various units of lengths.

STARTER
Begin the lesson by asking them questions on simple subtractions problems.

Monday  Meaning of circle and  parts of a circle
Resources  a cardboard with circle drawn on it  

A circle is a perfect round plane. 
Examples of circle are; coins, wheels, rings, tin tops and bottom of buckets.
Parts of a Circle. Centre: the point at the middle of the circle.
Circumference: is the curved outer edge of the circle. (the distance round the circle ). It is the longest part of a circle.
Diameter: the line from a side through the centre to another side. It divides the circle to equal halves. Half of a diameter is a radius.
Radius: is any straight line drawn from the centre to the circumference.
Semi-circle: half of a circle.
Quadrant : is a quarter part of a circle.
Chord: a straight line joining two points on the circumference. ( a chord does not divide a circle into equal halves like the diameter)
Sector: is a region between two radii and the circumference.
Begin the lesson by drawing a circle on the board and asking them w…
