### Length in Metric Units Game Estimating Length

Materials

Play with a partner.

- Take turns choosing a picture. Find the real object.
- Each player estimates the length of the object in cubes and then makes a cube train for his or her estimate.
- Compare the cube trains to the length of the object. The player with the closer estimate puts a counter on the picture. If there is a tie, both players put a counter on the picture.
- Repeat until all pictures are covered. The player with more counters on the board wins.

### Length in Metric Units Vocabulary Game

Go Fish

For 3 players

Materials

- 4 sets of word cards

How to Play

- Every player is dealt 5 cards. Put the rest face-down in a draw pile.
- Ask another player for a word card to match a word card you have.
- If the player has the word card, he or she gives it to you. Put both cards in front of you. Take another turn.
- If the player does not have the word, he or she answers, “Go fish.” Take a card from the pile. If the word you get matches one you are holding, put both cards in front of you. Take another turn. If it does not match, your turn is over.

- The game is over when one player has no cards left. The player with the most pairs wins.

The Write Way

Reflect

Choose one idea. Write about it in the space below.

- Compare a centimeter to a meter. Explain how they are alike and how they are different.
- Explain how you would find the length of this crayon in centimeters.

Question 9.

**THINK SMARTER**

Mrs. Duncan measured the lengths of a crayon and a pencil. The pencil is double the length of the crayon. The sum of their lengths is 24 centimeters. What are their lengths?

crayon : _____________________

pencil : _____________

Answer:

Let the length of the crayon be x

Length of a pencil = 2x

As according to the question that the sum of their length is 24 centimeters.

So we have

x + 2x = 24

3x = 24

x = 8

Thus the length of the crayon = 8 centimeters

Length of pencil = 2x

Substitute the value of x

2 × 8 = 16

Thus the length of pencil is 16 centimeters and

length of crayons is 8 centimeters.
