# Learn about feet, yards, and miles - measurement lesson for 3rd grade math

In this lesson, we deal with the basics of these measurement units: foot, yard, and mile.

I measure lines using a ruler that measures in feet and inches. Then we calculate the area & perimeter of a square with 4-yard sides. Next, it's time to figure out which measuring unit fits best the given situation (fill in the blanks!).

Next, we do a few easy conversion problems, converting feet into inches, and also feet & inches into inches.

Lastly we solve a word problem concerning two children's heights (given in feet and inches).
