Measuring Madness
We have spent a lot of time this week getting hands on with different measurement units. From filling containers to understand milliliters and liters, measuring objects in the classroom in centimeters and working out the times that the rickshaw bus takes to get around Hong Kong. Enjoy a photographic snapshot of the activities below.

Dear Andy,
My answer is 36 plastic balls. If there are three dozen balls in a bag it doesn't matter what colour they are if you are just asking for how many there are.

Hi Andy,
My answer is 36 plastic balls because three dozen are plastic and 36=3 dozen and also you said at the beginning that 3dozen are plastic.
