This primary resource helps with the teaching and learning of speed and time values. Use this fun, real life example to open opportunity for discussion about durations of events.

Pupils will have the opportunity to see numbers in use from units of hundreds, thousands, millions and beyond in our National Geographic Kids’ Maths primary resource sheet.

The teaching resource can be used in study group tasks, as a printed handout for each pupil, or for display on the interactive whiteboard.

Activity: Ask children to write out all the numbers included in the resource (e.g. 16 million) as numerals and in words. Discuss and research other large numbers, such as: how many people live in their hometown? In the UK? Pupils could discuss as a class how experts may have reached the figures shown in the article. Did they count, or estimate? How might they have estimated the quantities?

 

N.B. The following information for mapping the resource documents to the school curriculum is specifically tailored to the English National Curriculum and Scottish Curriculum for Excellence. We are currently working to bring specifically tailored curriculum resource links for our other territories; including South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. If you have any queries about our upcoming curriculum resource links, please email: schools@ngkids.co.uk
