Measuring in metres

I doubt you have a metre stick in your house but you can use a tape measure if you have one in your house. If you can't find a tape measure then not to worry because I've tried to support you with these activities. 

 

1 metre is the same as 100 centimetres.

1 metre = 100cm

Would you measure a TV remote with a ruler or a metre stick? You wouldn't use a metre stick because it's easier to use a ruler. Would you measure the length of a car with rulers or a metre stick? You would use a metre stick because it's more practical and sensible rather than using lots of rulers.
