  1. 1. Metric system of measurement<br />
  2. 2. length<br />Centimeters (cm)<br />Decimeter (dm)= 10 cm<br />Meter (m) =10 dm=100 cm<br />Kilometer (km) = 1000 meters<br />
  3. 3. Capacity/Volume<br />Milliliter (mL)<br />Liter (L)<br />1000 mL = L<br />
  4. 4. Mass (a little like weight)<br />Measured in grams (g)<br />1000 g = 1 kilogram (kg)<br />To go from kg to grams add 3 zeros<br />To go from g to kg drop 3 zeros<br />
  5. 5. Temperature Degrees celcius<br />100 degrees = water boils<br />37 degrees = body temperature<br />30 degrees = hot day<br />20 degrees = room temperature<br />0 degrees = water freezes<br />-10 degrees = cold day <br />
