Comparing Measurements | 2nd Grade
Kindergartner's & 2nd Graders concur! Comparing lengths and measurements have never been more fun than Tico and Mario have made it in this ridiculously fun song by Numberock's resident monkeys. As you'll soon find out, Mario usually has objects that are a little bit longer than Tico's objects, but as Tico shows, one's guitar skills are not dependent on how short or long your guitar is!

Comparing Measurements Lyrics
Tico's rope is two feet long,
Mario's rope is four feet long
So Mario said to Tico,
I have got the longer rope,
'cause yours is two and mine is four,
so my rope has two feet more.
We go HEYO!
Who has got the longer rope?
We go HEYO!
Mario's got the longer rope.
Mario’s boat is 9 feet long
Tico’s boat is 5 feet long
so Tico said to Mario
I have got a shorter boat
‘Cause mine’s 5 feet and yours is nine
which is 4 feet longer than mine
Tico's telescope is 3 feet long
Mario’s telescope is 5 feet long
so Mario said to Tico
I have a longer telescope
‘Cause mine’s 5 feet and yours is three
so mine is longer by 2 feet
We go HEYO!
Who's got a longer guitar?
The Tico and Mario combined
their two papayas on a number line
Mario had an eleven inch papaya
Tico's was nine, that was the data
They started at eleven and added nine...
The shared all twenty inches for suppertime.
