Learn how to measure in English Units while saving the world from improper conversions.
"Imperial English Measures of Length Song"
We are the women and men of measurement;
if there’s a distance, we find the length of it.

We know we can always put
twelve inches inside a foot.

And one yard just won’t be complete
if it does not contain three feet.

One inch is what you’ve got
if you’re looking at the top of a bottle a’ pop.

On your thumb there’s about one inch
from your knuckle to your fingertip.

We are the women and men of measurement;
if there’s a distance, we find the length of it.

The length of the folder where your work is put
measures out to just one foot.

You’ll find a foot if you just look
at the height of the parrot on my hook.

A football field has one hundred marks;
each one is a yard apart.

At the plate with a softball bat,
a yard is about what you’re looking at.

We are the women and men of measurement;
if there’s a distance, we find the length of it.

Open our fingers a pinch and make an inch;
then make our hands look just like a foot.

Put them three times as far and make a yard;
now we know how long they are!
_______________________________________________ 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.

We'll be releasing new songs and videos regularly until eventually addressing all the math skills and concepts that a Common Core Curriculum demands from 3rd Grade to 4th Grade, and even 5th Grade to 6th Grade.

Our main goal is to make teaching and learning math more fun and more interactive. SchoolHouse Rock! has done this in other subjects for us in the previous generations, and many of us still enjoy watching their YouTube Videos which teach us about Government, Science, and English amongst other subjects.

This video addresses the following Common Core Standards:

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

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