# Metric System Conversions Song | Elementary Grades

Numberock's Metric System Song showcases real life examples of the most common units of metric length. Learn about metric conversions such as a millimeter is about the length of a grain of sand, a staple from side to side is about a centimeter, and so much more!

#### Metric System Song Lyrics:

A millimeter you can understand,
Is about as long as a grain of sand.
When you buy food at lunchtime,
It's about the thickness of a dime.
A staple from side to side
A fingernail on a girl or guy

10 Millimeters = 1 Centimeter
100 Centimeters = 1 Meter
1000 Meters = 1 Kilometer
And it's the same for grams and liters.

A schoolbus' diameter
And a meter is about as far,
As the length of a guitar.
10 soccer (football) fields in a row
It's about how far you walk
If you cross 12 city blocks.

Imagine holding a grain of sand
Or a marble in your hand
