Measure the length of objects in both metric and U.S. Customary units, measuring to the nearest inch (1/2 , 1/4 , 1/8), foot, yard, mile, millimeter, centimeter, or meter, and record the length including the appropriate unit of measure (e.g., 24 inches).
The student will a) estimate and measure length, and describe the result in both metric and U.S. Customary units; and b) identify equivalent measurements between units within the U.S. Customary system (inches and feet; feet and yards; inches and yards; yards and miles) and between units within the metric system (millimeters and centimeters; centimeters and meters; and millimeters and meters).
