Learn the Imperial/English System of Weight Measurement

Watch Yolanda explore various objects that weigh ounces, pounds, and tons. At one point, she even turns into a Walrus - which on average weigh about 2000 lbs [or one ton!] Other highlights in this video include finding treasure, playing ball, and even a cameo by a REALLY hip nun driving a sports car.

Let the memorably catchy melody and fun, engaging animations take your class on a journey through the world of measuring by weight in ounces, pounds, and tons. Don't be surprised if you're asked to hit the replay button, or even catch your students singing this song at lunchtime, recess, or even humming the melody during class!

LYRICS:

Put sixteen ounces on a scale;
It’ll weigh one pound without fail.

Pick up sixteen ounces off the ground,
And you just lifted one pound.

And if a ball weighs sixteen ounces,
A pound hits the ground every time it bounces.

If you weighed two thousand pounds, you couldn’t run,
‘cause if you weighed that much you would be one ton!

But if you found treasure, it would be real fun,
If all that gold weighed up to one ton,

‘cause all that would make mounds and mounds,
As a ton is equal to two thousand pounds!

I looked up how many ounces were in a pound,
and sixteen ounces is what I found.

Then I stacked up pounds until they weighed a ton,
And it took two thousand until I was done.

Lots of things weigh about an ounce,
Like four quarters or a friendly mouse.

Lots of things weigh about a pound,
Like this bottle of soda that my teacher found.

Lots of things weigh about a ton,
Like a small car driven by a really hip nun!

I looked up how many ounces were in a pound,
And sixteen ounces is what I found.

Then I stacked up pounds until they weighed a ton,
And it took two thousand until I was done.

http://www.NUMBEROCK.com is a provider of educational videos for kids which was founded by an innovative 5th Grade teacher who envisioned a new kind of classroom where students got energized for math class. Parents of his students even noticed their children singing mathematics songs around the dinner table well beyond school hours.

Seeing his students so enthusiastic when it was time for math was welcome, to say the least! But the epiphanous moment was when students were singing math songs all-day long like they were in the American Top 40!

Each of these rhythmic music videos from NUMBEROCK can be enjoyed right here on our YouTube Channel. We, hereby, cordially invite you to browse through the full library and hope you'll find that the songs make the maths* remarkably more fun.

We dare to believe that these math songs + videos can actually identify with elementary school children's increasingly finicky perception of what is cool and trendy. While each song is diverse in composition, most fit directly into the modern musical genres that excite young kids: genres such as Rap, R&B, Pop, Hip-Hop and even Reggae!

We're curious to see how these musical math videos will be used now that we have shared them with a broader audience. But whether you use these songs as a rich teaching resource or just to brighten up the school-day a bit, we hope that as our project continues you will eventually find a relevant song for each lesson plan and concept in the math curriculum taught throughout the academic year.

This video addresses the following Common Core Standards:

4.MD (Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit.)

5.MD (Convert like measurement units within a given measurement system.)
