# Max Maths, Year 2, Practice, Measuring length in centimetres and in metres (2)

In the Max Maths Year 2 practice section on measuring length, students are encouraged to develop their estimation and measuring skills. The exercise involves a series of lines, and for each one, students must first estimate its length in centimetres and then use a ruler to measure the actual length. This task is designed to help children understand and appreciate the difference between an estimate and a precise measurement, enhancing their ability to gauge lengths visually and improving their proficiency with using standard units of measure.

The activity is laid out in a simple format where each line, labelled from (a) to (e), has a space for the child to write down their estimated length followed by the actual length once they have measured it with a ruler. This hands-on approach not only reinforces the concept of length but also provides practical experience in measurement. For further practice and to consolidate their learning, students are directed to workbook pages 116 to 123, where they can explore the topic in more depth through additional exercises and examples.
