Lengths - Class 1

What is Length?

Length is how long or short an object is. It's like measuring how big or small an object is by measuring from one end of the object to another. We use different tools like rulers to measure length and find out how tall or short things are.

We can measure the length of different objects present around us. For example, We can measure how long your pencil box is or how tall a building is using length.

For example, wood, pipe, wire, etc.
