# Metric System Video | Upper Elementary Grades

Is there a better way to memorize the prefixes in the Metric System than through a big band sing along? Probably not. Find out for yourself by watching this incredible music video and never again forget what HECTO means, or even the obscure DECI (One tenth! One tenth!).

To expand upon this lesson, there are video-based activities available for premium members like a wall poster, a lyrics sheet, a lesson plan, a printable game, and more directly to the side of the video player.

#### Metric System Song Lyrics:

One thousand – KILO!
One hundred - HECTO!
Ten is decameters.

One tenth – DECI!
One hundredth – CENTI!
One thousandth is millimeters.

One decameter is ten meters.
One hectometer is one hundred meters.
One kilometer is one thousand meters,
and here is how we remember:

One thousand – KILO!
One hundred - HECTO!
Ten is decameters.

One tenth – DECI!
One hundredth – CENTI!
One thousandth is millimeters.

One decimeter’s one tenth of a meter.
One hundredth is a centimeter.
One millimeter’s one thousandth of a meter,
and here is how we remember:

One thousand – KILO!
One hundred - HECTO!
Ten is decameters.

One tenth – DECI!
One hundredth – CENTI!
One thousandth is millimeters.
