|Everything is made of matter. We need to know how much of something is there or how long or how tall somethings are. To find out all this, we need to take some measurements. Measuring things is a way to use numbers to say how long or how tall things are.
Have you ever measured how tall you are? Or, have you ever measured how long your study table is? There are units of measurement that help you to find the answer.
To tell how tall you are, most likely you'll use a combination of inches and feet.
Measuring the height of an object or thing states how tall it is.
To find the length of an object, the units 'inches' and 'feet' are used. A different unit of measurement called centimeters is also used to measure length.
