1. Miss Oberlander Metric Length

2. Metric Length is based on a meter. • Meter Stick (a little longer than a yard)

3. Millimeter  1,000mm = 1 m mm to measure about a spot on a ladybug

4. Centimeter  100cm = 1 m cm is about the length of a thumbtack

5. Meter (slightly longer than yd) m can measure the height of a small easel

6. Kilometer  1,000 meters

7. Other countries measure distance with kilometers instead of miles! • Check out the speed limit signs from around the world! It looks like you can drive faster…but remember a km is a little bit more than ONLY ½ mi.

8. Kilometers measure metric distance.

9. Game! • Hold up the sign language letter for the correct answer for each slide!
