Video Summary

A millimeter you can understand,
Is about as long as a grain of sand.

When you buy food at lunchtime,
It's about the thickness of a dime.

A staple from side to side
Is about a centimeter wide.

A fingernail on a girl or guy
Is about a centimeter high.

10 Millimeters = 1 Centimeter
100 Centimeters = 1 Meter
1000 Meters = 1 Kilometer
And it's the same for grams and liters.

A schoolbus' diameter
Is about 1 meter.

And a meter is about as far,
As the length of a guitar.

10 soccer (football) fields in a row
About a kilometer you'll go.

It's about how far you walk
If you cross 12 city blocks.

Imagine holding a grain of sand
About a Millimeter

Or a marble in your hand
About a Centimeter

A door handle from the floor
About a Meter

A 10-minute walk on the shore
About a Kilometer
