# Lesson video

In progress...

Hi, friends.

It's Miss.

Molnar here, and it's Harold, the hedgehog back with his red bus because we are ready for part two of our lesson in maths, all about measuring objects, using non-standard units.

So you'll have to make sure that you did part one of this lesson first.

And in part one, if you remember, we were measuring all of our cars to make sure they were able to fit in our car parks.

So in the last lesson we should've recorded down all of their measurements.

If you've done that, then we can now get started and see what you're going to need for today's lesson.

So we can finish up our car parks.

So you're going to need your toy cars or the vehicles that you used from the last lesson.

So maybe you printed out the pictures of the cars and use those.

Maybe you had some trains or Lego cars, but make sure you have all the same ones from last time.

You're also going to need some objects for measuring.

Okay, so last time you might've used some pasta pieces or maybe some Lego bricks.

And you're going to need that again today, but you're also going to need something tinier, okay? So I've got some little pine nuts today to use.

And then finally, this is where you can get a little creative depending on what you have in your home and what your parent or care says is okay to use.

When we're actually going to make the car parking spaces on a piece of card or a piece of paper you might want to actually make the spaces using some play dough or some plasticine.

If you've got some string or some ribbon, or you could even use some long spaghetti pieces that are dried, some dried pasta and a parent or care could help you break them to be the right size.

I'm just going to draw my parking spaces with a pen, but we thought it might be fun for you to actually use some of these other items. So you can decide if you're just going to use a pen or you might want to actually build it.

And then you could keep your car park by using some play dough or string.

All right, so pause the video, go ask your parent or care what items you can use, get them ready and we can begin.

All right, so I'm going to look back at my measurement for my taxi.

Now my taxi was one long in terms of width and four cubes long.

So what I'm going to do is I'm going to take a measuring tool.

So I'm going to take a pine nut and I'm going to measure it out.

And I'm going to draw my parking space.

So I know it's got to be at least one wide.

So I'm going to mark that and it's got to be four long.

So I've got one, I'm just going to mark that out for myself.

Two, three, and four.

So I've marked that, now I can draw up my parking space to the right measure measurements.

So now I'm going to get my taxi cab and it's going to drive in.

Oh, it still doesn't fit.

What have I done wrong? Do you remember what I used for my measuring tool last time? Did I use the pine nut last time? No, I did not remember.

I used my cubes, so I need to make sure that when I'm measuring, when it says four, that I'm using four of the cubes and not four the pine nuts, because that's not going to give me the same length.

So I'm going to wrap that out and I'm going to show you though.

I'm going to show you though how we could still use the pine nut, but I need to make sure that I've got the same length of pine nuts as cubes.

So if I'm going to do my width of a cube.

My pine nut wide of the cube would be one, two.

It'd be two pine nuts long.

So when I go to actually make up my space, then the width needs to be at least two of these long.

If I was going to use the pine nuts.

If I was going to use the length of the cubes of the pine nuts, for how long the car should be, I could see how many it needs to be.

One, two, three, four, five, and six.

So I can't use the pine nut with the same measurements.

But what I'm going to do is I'm just going to go back to my cubes from before to make sure it was accurate.

So let's try this again.

So I know it needs to be at least one cube length wide.

Now remember, you're going to want it to be a little bit wider than your measuring tool, because you want to make sure that the car has enough space to get it.

Then remember we said, it's got to be at least four cubes long, and I know that's going to be long enough because the car wasn't quite far long, was it? So I'm going to put that there.

I'm going to measure it out to make sure I've got the right length.

And now I can draw my parking space and I'm sure yours is going to be a little bit more creative than mine is.

Now remember, this is when you could get your play dough or your string or your pasta and you could tape it or maybe glue it or just push the play dough down on the space.

And it can be something that you can keep, but I'm just drawing mine now.

If you want to draw it, that's okay as well.

All right, so let's see if my taxi fits into my parking spot now.

Here we go.

Does it fit this time? Much better and he's even got a little bit of space so he can open the doors or even open the boot.

Well done, all right.

Let's do the same thing for the bus.

We're going to get this and again, we're going to measure it.

Make sure there's space on either side.

Because we've got the same measurement for the bus.

If your cars have a different measurement, you need to make sure in your parking lot, you draw some spaces big enough for them, if they're different.

Mine needed just about the same amount of space.

All right, so let's see if now my bus has some room.

And there we go.

Now it has just enough space in my parking, in my parking lot or my car park for both of my vehicles.

All right, so this is it everyone.

Now I'm sure yours is going to have a lot more detail than mine and Harold's.

You could draw some lovely trees on your car park.

You could bring in lots of colours.

You could get the play dough or plasticine out to make the spaces so you can make sure they have enough room.

You can do whatever you like to decorate your car park, but you just need to make sure that you make the spaces big enough for each of the vehicles that you've measured.

So go back and get your measuring tool.

Get whatever you're using.

If it's the plasticine, play dough or string, all the materials that you need.

And we can't wait to see when you've finished your car park and with all of the cars in it.

All right, pause the video, go get what you need and get started on your very own car park.

Well, how did your car parks turn out everyone? What did you use to make the parking spaces? Well, we really, really hope, if you haven't yet, that you take some photos if you're learning from today, because we would absolutely love and we're sure your teachers would love to see some great pictures of your car parks.

And if you'd like, we would really like it if you shared some of those photos with us here at Oak.

So you could ask a parent or care to share the photos with us on our social media.

We would love to see how your car parks turned out.

Alright, well, I'm afraid that is all we have time for today, friends, but we really hope you enjoyed that lesson.

And hopefully we will see you again soon.

Bye from Miss.

Molnar and bye from Harold, everyone.
