Millimetres and Millilitres


Children focus on the use of milli- in units of length and mass. They understand that milli- means      1


They convert from metres to millimetres (mm), litres to millilitres (ml) and vice versa.

Using rulers, metre sticks, jugs and bottles helps children to get a better understanding of the conversions.
