    Thank you for the feedback. I intend to evolve this resource a little and put a few more types of scales in, with more lines of demarcation for more challenging reading. Don’t worry though; these will be addtions to what is already there.

    A fantastic resource! I found it very hard to find any resources to do with reading scales between two divisions. Thank you

    I am a teacher and always struggled to find decent ‘reading scales’ type material. Kids of 7-9 years loved it – a great teaching aid.

    Brilliant, I teach adults on a numeracy Skills for Life course. This is just what I was looking for. Thanks. Shelagh G

    It is the most used resource on this site so I think you are right! So much so I am working on an update to it which I hope will be ready soon…

    A very useful resource. I am not sure if the tachometer should say “x1000″. It didn’t stop me using it however. Very successful lesson.

    Well spotted! I put the X1000 and put the scale digits at the thousands. I will correct this soon. Thanks for letting me know.

    What are the chances you could throw in some scales with Fahrenheit and pounds for your American neighbors? I use your scales no matter what the measurement for elementary children with special needs and they love it!!

    This is a fantastic resource. We were looking for ages for something with a variety of different real life scales. Thank you so much. It would be great if we could download these as well.
