What do you know about the Metric System?

You learned about a "personal reference" for measuring length. Take a photo of 3 objects that you could use as a personal reference:
  • 1 for milimeters,
  • 1 for centimeters and
  • 1 for meter.

  1. Upload your three photos.
  2. Add a caption for each picture to describe your choices.
  3. Write a sentence to explain the idea of a "personal reference."

The right side od the door is 1 meter from the doorknob.

The idea of a personal reference is that you can have it almost anywhere you go, like... my pants:-D
