The Metric SystemBook - 2010
This fascinating book takes young readers on a trip to a science lab where they will learn about the metric system. Simple text shows ways of measuring length (meters and centimeters), temperature (Celsius), and weight (grams and kilograms). Comparisons between key metric measurements and similar U.S. customary measurements, such as yards, inches, and Fahrenheit, help students understand the two systems.
