use scaled and digital instruments to interpret unmarked and partial units to measure and compare lengths, masses, capacities, durations and temperatures, using appropriate units
Elaborations

reading the mass of objects measured with digital and analog kitchen scales and explaining what unit of mass the lines on the analog scales refer to

deciding on which attribute, unit and measuring instrument to use to compare the length and mass of various things, such as the distance travelled by an object in a science investigation; and explaining the use of units such as grams or millimetres to give accurate measures when needed

using scaled instruments such as tape measures, measuring jugs, kitchen scales and thermometers to record measures using whole units (for example, 560 millimetres) or whole and part units (for example, 5.25 metres, 1.75 litres, 2.5 kilograms, 28.5° Celsius)

reading and interpreting the scale of an analog clock without marked minutes to estimate the time to the nearest minute and to determine the duration of time between events

using the timer or alarm function of a clock to alert when a specified duration has elapsed from a given starting time, for example, for the different activities of an exercise routine

making a scaled measuring instrument such as a tape measure, ruler, sand timer, sundial or measuring cup using scaled instruments and direct comparisons

exploring the different types of scaled instruments used by Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander ranger groups and other groups to make decisions about caring for Country/Place, and modelling these in local contexts
