**Measurements are relative!!**

Foot = human foot Inch = 3 barley corns Yard = nose to outstretched fingertip Mile = 1,000 paces Gallon = simply the name for a pail

3
**Why is there a need for one system of measurement?**

Universal acceptance Accurate measurement

4
**Do you know our current system?**

How many inches in a foot? How many feet in a yard? How many feet in a mile? How many ounces in a cup? How many cups in pint? How many pints in a quart? 5,280 feet in a mile (note nautical miles are different). 8 fluid ounces in a cup. 2 cups in a pint / 2 pints in quart

**7 Standard Metric Base Units**

Unit of length (metre) Unit of mass (kilogram) Unit of temperature (kelvin) Unit of time (second) Unit of electric current (ampere) Unit of amount of substance (mole) Unit of luminous intensity (candela)

**Measurements Length (m) Mass (kg) Volume (L) Temperature (K or C)**

Time (s)
