Mass: Base unit = gram Paperclip = 1 gram Puppy = 1 kg 100 pounds= 45.3592 kg

2
Length: Base unit = meter Baseball bat = 1 meter Distance from the floor to a doorknob= 1 meter Width of a paper clip = 1 cm The thickness of a dime = 1mm 1 km= 0.6 miles

3
Volume: Base unit = liter 1 liter 2 liter 1 liter = 1000 ml

5
Converting Units Remember this mnemonic: King Henry Doesn't Usually Drink Chocolate Milk

7
Then make this ladder

8
Abbreviations How would you write these? Kilogram Kg Hectoliter HL Dekagram Dag decigram dg millimeter mm Meter mm

9
Set up your ladder and use the ladder method to convert
