My L1 learners were really struggling to remember what to do to convert units of measurement and were getting very confused at the initial stage, so I made this resource and laminated it so that it was available for them to look at if they couldn’t remember. Could also be made into a poster.

A resource I created to support my students getting used to what they needed to divide or multiply by to convert between units. Can easily be laminated for repeated use, or increased in size and turned in to a poster.

Resource type: Worksheet or assignment

Addition and subtraction task I use in induction sessions with Entry level construction students.
Students need to use the code to work out the ‘value’ of each word. They can then use the answers for the second page.
Normally I give out the first page and use the second as an extension task.
