Video Description:

What in the world do superheroes have to do with measuring things in inches, feet, and yards?

Ladies and gentlemen, meet The Women and Men of Measurement!

Through this fun and whimsical melody, your students will unlock the meanings of inches, feet, and yards. They'll remind themselves of the units for fun on the playground, lunchroom, or maybe even over the dinner table as the sing this catchy tune over and over again.

Inches, Feet, Yards Song Lyrics:

We are the women and men of measurement;
if there’s a distance, we find the length of it.

We know we can always put
twelve inches inside a foot.
And one yard just won’t be complete
if it does not contain three feet.

One inch is what you’ve got
if you’re looking at the top of a bottle a’ pop.
On your thumb there’s about one inch
from your knuckle to your fingertip.

We are the women and men of measurement;
if there’s a distance, we find the length of it.

The length of the folder where your work is put
measures out to just one foot.
You’ll find a foot if you just look
at the height of the parrot on my hook.

A football field has one hundred marks;
each one is a yard apart.
At the plate with a softball bat,
a yard is about what you’re looking at.

We are the women and men of measurement;
if there’s a distance, we find the length of it.

Open our fingers a pinch and make an inch;
then make our hands look just like a foot.
Put them three times as far and make a yard;
now we know how long they are!
