Standard Measurements of Length Standard Measurements of Length Presentation Transcript

  • Do you measure up?! Measuring using… INCHES FEET YARDS MILES
  • STANDARD SYSTEM - INCHES
    • Look on your ruler – each of the big numbers on it represents an inch .
    • Which of these would you measure in inches?:
  • STANDARD SYSTEM - FEET
    • Now look at that ruler again – does anyone know what unit of measurement that one of these rulers is equal to?
    = _____________________
  • STANDARD SYSTEM - FEET
    • What would we measure in feet ?
    City roads or distances between places A pencil Our height
  • FEET & INCHES
    • Count the number of inches on your foot ruler.
    • 1 foot = ___ inches
  • FEET & INCHES
    • Count the number of inches on your foot ruler.
    • 1 foot = 12 inches
    Did you know?! -- The lines halfway between each number on a ruler are half-inches! So the bigger line in between 10 & 11 is ____ in.
  • STANDARD SYSTEM - YARDS
    • Want to find a quicker way to measure something than lining up a few 12-in. rulers?
    • That’s when you can measure in yard s ! Where have you heard of something measured in yards?
  • STANDARD SYSTEM - YARDS
    • Of course – in football! Every small marking on the field is 1 yard –OR– 3 feet , because…
    1 yard = 3 feet = 36 inches
  • Ways to remember our units… 1 inch = About from the top of Your thumb to the knuckle 1 foot = About an egg carton 1 yard = About the width of A normal doorway 1 in. 1 ft. 1 yd.
  • ALL EQUAL!
  • What about long distance?!
    • What if you want to measure from your house to a friend’s house?
    • What unit
    • would you
    • use?
  • STANDARD SYSTEM - MILES
    • A mile is a long way if you think about it - one mile = 1,760 yd / 5,280 ft ! That would take:
    • 1,760 yardsticks…
    • … 5,280 rulers…
    • …and don’t even think about measuring it with your thumbs! 1 mile = 63,360 inches!!!
  • (To the tune of “She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain…”)
    • “ We’ll be measurin’ with feet, inches, and yards… (Yee haw!)
    • We’ll be measurin’ with feet, inches, and yards… (Yee haw!)
    • If 12 inches is a foot…
    • … And 3 feet is a yard…
    • Then we’ve got 36 inches in a yard!
    • (One more time!)”
    (Click for the tune!)
