Take a deeper look at the summary of all 6 videos

1. THE METRIC SYSTEM
Is there a better way to memorize the prefixes in the Metric System than through a big band sing along? Probably not. Find out for yourself by watching this incredible music video and never again forget what HECTO means, or even the obscure DECI (One tenth! One tenth!) A second music video with for younger grades is also included in this download with an accompanying lesson plan. It goes over only MM, CM, M, and KM for students who are at grade levels that don’t cover all of the metric prefixes. It would be a challenge to show this video in class and not have everyone joyfully participate - it's just that much fun. In my own class I often like to make it into a round with the boys and girls in separate groups. Anyways, check it out and let me know how y'all like it!

Teach your students the metric measurement prefixes in the most unique of ways!

2. UNITS OF TIME

Learn about the way humans have come to measure time. From seconds to millenniums, months to explaining leap years and more, this song goes over everything you need know about our modern system of time. Incredibly catchy, and as entertaining as it is informative, this music video will have your students asking you to hit replay. It creatively impresses the units of time, months of the year, and more into your students memory with its memorable tune and lively animations. We think that the chorus on this song is so, so catchy - give it a listen and let us know if you agree!

3. CAPACITY

This 3-D animated movie will have you singing along as you memorize the meanings of fluid ounces, cups, pints, quarts, and gallons. It even gives kids a challenging lunchtime experiment to try with their milk cartons to discover first-hand the amount of fluid in a fluid ounce. As if it wasn't cool enough that this original song and animation will lay a solid foundational base for concerting capacities, it has the added bonus of being catchy and memorable. We know you'll agree!

4. INCHES, FEET, & YARDS

What in the world do superheroes have to do with measuring things in inches, feet, and yards; apparently a lot; because a new race of superheroes have made it their mission to teach us about the relative lengths of standard units and how they compare to one another. Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce The Women and Men of Measurement! Through this fun and whimsical melody, your students will unlock the meanings of inches, feet, and yards. They'll remind themselves of the units for fun on the playground, lunchroom, or maybe even over the dinner table as the sing this catchy tune over and over again. The most fun way to learn measurement conversions!

5. OUNCES, POUNDS & TONS

Watch Yolanda explore various objects that weigh ounces, pounds, and tons. At one point, she even turns into a Walrus - which on average weigh about 2000 lbs [or one ton!] Other highlights in this video include finding treasure, playing ball, and even a cameo by a REALLY hip nun driving a sports car. Let the memorably catchy melody and fun, engaging animations take your class on a journey through the world of measuring by weight in ounces, pounds, and tons. Don't be surprised if you're asked to hit the replay button, or even catch your students singing this song at lunchtime, recess, or even humming the melody during class! This activity is perhaps the coolest way to learn the traditional English / Imperial System of Measurement.

6. ANGLES

Which type angle is the cutest? Which looks like the antlers on the head of a FULL-GROWN moose?! Find out the answers to these mysterious questions as Earl, our favorite pizza delivery man, takes us on his route for a day to show us around the world of angles. Although, there is perhaps one more thing that I feel I should warn you about: this song is almost too much fun!

Metric System Lyrics (Simplified Prefixes)

A millimeter - you can understand -
is about as long as a grain of sand.
When you buy food at lunch time,
it’s about the thickness of a dime.
A staple - from side to side - is about one centimeter wide.
A fingernail on a girl or guy is about a centimeter high.
Ten millimeters is a centimeter.
One hundred centimeters is a meter.
One thousand meters - that’s a kilometer,
and it’s the same for grams and liters.
A school bus wheel’s diameter is about one meter,
and a meter is about as far as the length of a guitar.
Run ten soccer fields in a row... about a kilometer you’ll go.
It’s about how far you’d walk
if you crossed twelve city blocks.
Imagine holding a grain of sand (about a millimeter!),
a door handle from the floor (about a meter!),
a ten-minute walk on the shore (about a kilometer!)

Metric System Lyrics (Expanded Prefixes)

One thousand – KILO!
One hundred - HECTO!
Ten is decameters.
One tenth – DECI!
One hundredth – CENTI!
One thousandth is millimeters.
One decameter is ten meters.
One hectometer is one hundred meters.
One kilometer is one thousand meters,
and here is how we remember:
One thousand – KILO!
One hundred - HECTO!
Ten is decameters.
One tenth – DECI!
One hundredth – CENTI!
One thousandth is millimeters.
One decimeter’s one tenth of a meter.
One hundredth is a centimeter.
One millimeter’s one thousandth of a meter,
and here is how we remember:
One thousand – KILO!
One hundred - HECTO!
Ten is decameters.
One tenth – DECI!
One hundredth – CENTI!
One thousandth is millimeters.

Units of Time Lyrics

We know that there’s one minute
if we can fit sixty seconds in it.
If we could stack minutes and build a tower,
there would be sixty in an hour.

When twelve hours pass, then we’re halfway
to twenty -four hours, which makes a day.
And a week is complete in seven days,
but the length of a month is harder to say.
They can be twenty- eight to thirty -one days long;
one of them contains the day that you were born on!

January, March, May, July, August, October, December:
all have thirty -one days; all have thirty- one days.
April, June, September, and November:
all have thirty days; all have thirty days.
February has twenty -eight days, but when it’s a leap year,
it’s got twenty- nine days; it’s got twenty -nine days.

The length of a year is hard to make clear,
‘cause one of every four years is a leap year.
The common years happen three in a row
they have three hundred sixty -five days, you know.
Then a leap year comes with an intercalary,
that’s the name of the extra day in February.
That’s why leap years have three hundred sixty -six days
and why February’s number of days can change.

January, March, May, July, August, October, December:
all have thirty -one days; all have thirty- one days.
April, June, September, and November:
all have thirty days; all have thirty days.
February has twenty -eight days, but when it’s a leap year,
it’s got twenty- nine days; it’s got twenty -nine days.

one hundred years is a century,
and a millennium’s one thousand years of history!

Capacity Lyrics

One gallon split into fourths is four quarts.
Take that and divide by two and you got a pint.
Split that pint up into halves and make a cup,
and that cup will fit eight fluid ounces inside of it.
One gallon is four quarts (or eight pints, or sixteen cups)!
One quart is two pints
(or four cups, or thirty-two fluid ounces)!
One pint is two cups (or sixteen fluid ounces)!
One cup is eight fluid ounces!
A gallon of milk split in fourths makes four quarts.
Split a quart of milk in half; then a pint is what you’ll have,
which can make two cups you see often
when you drink your school milk carton.
If you can drink the milk in eight sips,
Volume is a word that’s familiar,
and capacity and volume are similar;
and though it’s easy to assume,
capacity’s not exactly volume.
Capacity’s how much something can hold;
the amount is always the same.
Volume’s the measure of what’s inside,
and that amount can change.

Inches, Feet & Yards Lyrics

We are the women and men of measurement;
if there’s a distance, we find the length of it.
We know we can always put
twelve inches inside a foot.
And one yard just won’t be complete
if it does not contain three feet.
One inch is what you’ve got
if you’re looking at the top of a bottle a’ pop.
We are the women and men of measurement;
if there’s a distance, we find the length of it.
The length of the folder where your work is put
measures out to just one foot.
You’ll find a foot if you look
at the height of the parrot on my hook.
A football field has one hundred marks;
each one is a yard apart.
At the plate with a softball bat,
a yard is about what you’re looking at.
Open your fingers a pinch and make an inch;
then make your hands look just like a foot.
Put them three times as far and make a yard;
now we know how long they are!
We are the women and men of measurement;
if there’s a distance, we find the length of it.

Ounces, Lbs, and Tons Lyrics

Put sixteen ounces on a scale;
it’ll weigh one pound without fail.
Pick up sixteen ounces off the ground,
and you just lifted one pound.
And if a ball weighs sixteen ounces,
a pound hits the ground every time it bounces.
If you weighed two thousand pounds, you couldn’t run,
‘cause if you weighed that much you would be one ton!
But if you found treasure, it would be real fun,
if all that gold weighed up to one ton,
‘cause all that would make mounds and mounds,
as a ton is equal to two thousand pounds!
I looked up how many ounces were in a pound,
and sixteen ounces is what I found.
Then I stacked up pounds until they weighed a ton,
and it took two thousand until I was done.
Lots of things weigh about an ounce,
like four quarters or a friendly mouse.
Lots of things weigh about a pound,
like this bottle of soda that my teacher found.
Lots of things weigh about a ton,
like a small car driven by a really hip nun!
I looked up how many ounces were in a pound,
and sixteen ounces is what I found.
Then I stacked up pounds until they weighed a ton,
and it took two thousand until I was done.

Angles Lyrics

Between zero and ninety an angle is acute.
This angle’s small and skinny and kind of cute.
It looks like a V or the top of a Y
or the angles that you see eating pizza or pie.
Angles are measured in degrees,
and here’s how to remember them with ease!
Only when an angle measures ninety do we call it right.
You can tell this angle just by sight.
It looks like an L or the corner of a square.
You’re looking at them when you’re walking up the stairs.
Angles are measured in degrees,
and here’s how to remember them with ease!
Between ninety and one hundred eighty, an angle is obtuse.
This angle’s kind of fat; it’s got a big caboose.
It’s like the hands on a clock when it’s quarter to two
or the antlers on the head of a full grown moose.
To measure an angle’s degrees with a protractor,
place the vertex at the hole in the center.
Line up one ray at zero on the protractor.
Remember that the zero can be on top or under.
Count up to where the other ray points at a number;
that will be the angle’s measure.
