In each nursery rhyme, students must choose 9-10 correct terms in the story.

(From Humpty Dumpty)
One nice fall day, Humpty Dumpty scaled the town's brick wall, which was 2 (meters, liters) tall.

Rain came gushing through the spout. The water felt as heavy as 1 (kilogram, kiloliter) bricks hitting his back.
