Lesson Focus: Draw Accurately


  • measure and draw straight lines accurately in centimetres and millimetres.
  • correctly position the ruler when measuring/drawing the line, by lining up the 0 with the start of the line.

Key Questions:

  • Where should we position the ruler when measuring each line? Why?
  • How long is each line in millimetres?
  • Why does 9 cm and 9 mm round to 10 cm and not 9 cm?
  • Look at the ruler/number line to explain your answer.
  • Do we round 10 cm and 5 mm to 10 cm or 11 cm? Why?
