MEASUREMENT What is Measurement? Measurement is used in our everyday lives. We measure to cook or bake, and how far away a place is. When we measure objects, we use rulers or yardsticks. When using rulers or yardsticks, we measure in inches and centimeters. When we measure how much of something, we use cups, pints, quarts, and gallons. When we measure how much something weighs, we use pounds. There are also metric measurements which include liters, centimeters, grams, and kilograms. How to measure: For proper measuring with a ruler, always line up the edge of the object with the zero on the ruler. Since the pencil is lined up to the zero, you can look at the sharpened end of the pencil to see how long it is. The pencil tip ends where the number seven is on the ruler. This means the pencil is seven inches (7 in.) long. Measuring cups and containers are used when measuring how much something will hold. 2 cups = 1 pint 2 pints = 1 quart 4 quarts = 1 gallon Scales are used to measure how much an object weighs. Weights are measured in pounds. They can also be measured in grams and kilograms. © Copyright NewPath Learning. All Rights Reserved.
