Measuring WEIGHT Ounce: An ounce is a unit of measurement used to measure the weight of an object. 5 nickels weigh about 1 ounce. Pound: 1 pound = 16 ounces Kilogram: 1 kilogram = a little over 2 pounds All of the units of measurement listed above are STANDARD units of measurement, meaning they are measurements that are accurate no matter who is doing the measuring. Non Standard Units of Measurement NON standard units of measurement are objects (or body parts) that you can use to measure the length another object. Using non standard units of measurement is not totally accurate. You should NOT use non standard units of measurement when you need an EXACT measurement of an object. Non standard units of measurement can be used when you just need a general idea of about the measurement of length of a certain object. Non standard units of measurement allow you to easily measure the length an object when you do not have a ruler or other standard measuring devices at hand. © Copyright NewPath Learning.

Hand span Your stretched out hand, which is known as a hand span, is a non standard unit of measurement. One hand span = the distance between the tip of your pinky to the tip of your thumb when your hand is stretched out. Look at your hand and then the hand of an adult. Are you hands different in size? They most likely are which goes to show you why using non standard units of measurement is not completely accurate. For instance: When you use your hand to measure your desk, you may measure 3 hand spans where as an adult may only measure 2 hand spans. Other non standard units of measurement you could use when measuring: A paper clip, a pencil, your arm (from elbow to fingertips), a book, or your shoe. © Copyright NewPath Learning.
