I have to hurry now - maybe I'm back later.I'm doing a math project on the metric system where I need 100 examples of the following:
- millimeters <<< small insects, coins, small screws or nuts, small fruits, ...
- centimeters <<< furniture, boxes and parcels, parts of a corpse (finger, nose, hair,...) length of animals, length of vehicles, ...
- meters <<< buildings, trees, length of trains of ships of planes, height of mountains, ...
- kiloliters <<< in Germany this is called a cubic meter, but there exists hektoliter (hl) which is used to measure large quatities of wine, beer or milk.
It's 100 items in total, and I would just like a couple of ideas to start off with. I know that you can measure anything in centimeters and such in theory, but it has to be appropriate for that item. (Like you can't say to measure a football field in millimeters.)<<<<<< why not? Of course it's unusual but you can do it!
I'll be grateful for any examples that you can provide.
