Measuring Lengths
 Lengths can be measured using our hand span, foots pan, pace, and cubit.
 Look at the buildings below.
 We can see that the building in the second figure is shorter than the first building.
Measuring Weight
 Weights can be measured by using a balance.
 We can notice that the heavier pan will go down.
 When the pans balance, the weight on both the pans is same.
 Using a weighing machine, we can measure the weight in kilogram(kg) and gram(g).
 For example, you can weigh your school bag, shoes, tiffin, etc using this weighing machine.
Measuring With A Scale
 We can measure the length with a centimetre scale.
 Smaller lengths are measured in centimetres.
 We can easily measure the lengths of the smaller objects we use in the school like a pencil box, an eraser, a sharpener etc.
Measuring Capacity
 We can use cups, mugs, small vessels, bottles etc, to measure the quantity of liquid. This is the way we measure the capacity of buckets.
 Look at the glass which contains more water and the one which contains less water.
The juice in the first glass is more than the second glass.
 If we look at the capacities of a bottle and a jug, a jug can hold 7 glasses of water and a bottle can hold 4 glasses of water. So, who has the more capacity?
We can easily say that the capacity of the jug is more than the bottle.
 Water takes the shape of the container it is put in Have a look at the figures below:
Measuring Cup
 Liquid is measured in litres (l).
 On measuring the capacity of liquid we can easily differentiate the difference in their litres.
 A bucket can hold more capacity of water than a bowl. Similarly,
 A cooking pot can hold less water than a cooking vessel.
