MEASUREMENT

Metric Units of Length 1 kilometer (km) = 1,000 meters (m)
1 meter (m) = 10 decimeters (dm) 1 meter (m) = 100 centimeters (cm) 1 meter (m) = 1,000 millimeters (mm)

1 centimeter (cm) = 10 millimeters (mm)
1 decimeter (dm) = 10 centimeters (cm) 1 decimeter (dm) = 100 millimeters (mm)

1 m

2.54 centimeters = 1 inch 1 Meter is a little more than a yard. 1 meter is approximately 3 inches longer than 1 yard.

Metric Units of Capacity
Capacity - the volume of a figure given as a liquid measurement (how much liquid an object holds) 1,000 milliliters (mL) = 1 liter (L) A milliliter is about 20 drops of water.

One liter is a little more than one quart.
A half gallon of orange juice is almost 2 liters. half gallon of OJ  liter soda

kilogram (kg) - a unit of mass equal to 1,000 g
Metric Units of Mass mass - the amount of matter that something contains gram (g) - a unit of mass kilogram (kg) - a unit of mass equal to 1,000 g 1,000 milligrams = 1 gram

A milliliter of water weighs about 1 gram (g).
The gram is used to measure small weights. A paper clip weighs about 1 gram

28 grams is approximately equal to 1 ounce.

The kilogram is used to measure heavier weights.
1 kilogram (kg) = 1,000 grams (g) A brick weighs about 1 kilogram

1 kilogram is approximately equal to 2.2 pounds.

Customary Units Length 12 inches (in.) = 1 foot (ft.)
36 inches (in.) = 3 feet (ft.) = 1 yard (yd.) 5,280 feet (ft.) = 1,760 yards = 1 mile(mi.)

Customary Units Capacity 8 fluid ounces (fl. oz.) = 1 cup (c)
2 cups (c) = 1 pint (pt) 2 pints (pt) = 1 quart (qt) 2 quarts (qt) = ½ gallon (gal) 4 quarts (qt) = 1 gallon (gal)

Customary Units Weight 16 ounces (oz) = 1 pound (lb)
2,000 pounds (lbs) = 1 Ton (T)

Customary Units Time 60 seconds (sec) = 1 minute (min)
60 minutes (min) = 1 hour (hr) 24 hours (hr) = 1 day 7 days = 1 week (wk) 52 weeks (wk) = 1 year (yr) 12 months (mo) = 1 year (yr) 365 days = 1 year (yr) 366 days = 1 leap year
