How Long, How Far?

Many times when you are on the go, you are heading somewhere that requires you be there by a certain time.

What you'll need
Information about how far you're traveling and how long it will take.

What to do
1. Ask your children how far they think you are traveling. Metres? Kilometres? Miles?
2. Talk about how long it takes to get there.
If it is 3:15 now, and it takes 45 minutes to get there, will we make it for a 4:15 appointment?
How much extra time will we have? Will we be late?

These types of questions help children see the usefulness of understanding distance and time.

PS: Consider doing more fun printable math activities.
