We measure millimetres with a ruler. We write how long something is by writing the number followed by mm (this is short for millimetres).
Remember that for every centimetre there are 10 millimetres.
1cm = 10mm
Measure objects around the house to the nearest millimetre and write down how long they are. What is the smallest and biggest object you can find?
Volume is the amount of space something takes up. We measure volume in either millilitres ml, centilitres cl, cubic centimetres cm³ or litres l.
