Synopsis

  • Things are measured to find out how big or how heavy they are.
  • The distance between two points is called length.
  • Words used for length:

 

 

 

 

(a) Height-length measured upwards.   

(b) Distance - length measured between objects on same level.

(c) Width - length measured from side to side.
