In science, we make many measuremnets. We measure the length, mass, volume, density, and temperature. We will be learning how to use the proper tools to make these measurements accurately and the correct units that go with these measurents. All measurements in science class will be in the metric system.
We have begun by measuring length. We have discussed the metric units mm, cm, m, and km. We have been using metric rulers, meter sticks, metric tape measures, and a meter wheel. "Measure twice, cut once!"
