### TranscriptInches, Feet, Yards, and Miles

What a beautiful day for Zuri to read her magazine! "Freddie, what are you doing?" "Oh, I heard you can measure things in feet!" "What? No Freddie, they meant like this!" Let's join Freddie in learning all about inches, feet, yards, and miles. Inches, feet, yards, and miles are customary measurements, or units, of length often used in the U.S. An inch is a very small measure of length and is represented by the abbreviation I N or a quotation mark. A foot is a bigger measurement than an inch and is represented by the abbreviation F T or an apostrophe. A yard is a bigger measurement than a foot and is represented by the abbreviation Y D. A mile is a bigger measurement than a yard and is represented by the abbreviation M I. We can compare measurements using a chart. Let's start by taking a closer look at inches! Twelve inches make up one foot. Thirty-six inches make up one yard. Sixty-three thousand three hundred sixty inches make up one mile. Now let's take a look at feet! Three feet make up one yard and five thousand two hundred eighty feet make up one mile. Now let's take a look at yards! One thousand seven hundred sixty yards make up one mile. And finally, let's look at miles! A mile is the biggest unit of length in the customary measurement system, so any long distance typically use miles. What are some items or objects that are roughly the size of each unit? A paperclip is roughly one inch. A footlong sub sandwich is roughly one foot. The length of an adult bike is roughly one yard. For one mile, there isn't a specific item that is one mile long, but four laps of a standard running track is equal to one mile! While Freddie finishes up learning about the customary units of length, let's review! Remember, inches, feet, yards, and miles are all customary measurements, or units of length in the U.S. An inch is a very small measure of length and is represented by the abbreviation I N or a quotation mark. A foot is a bigger measurement than an inch and is represented by the abbreviation F T or an apostrophe. A yard is a bigger measurement than a foot and is represented by the abbreviation Y D. A mile is a bigger measurement than a yard and is represented by the abbreviation M I. Finally, it looks like Zuri can really relax and read her magazine! "Freddie! What are you doing this time!" "I'm using this foot long sandwich to measure your face!" "What? No Freddie. I think you completely misunderstood!"
