Once again it is time to tackle a letter of the alphabet. This week it is Y - we are so close to the end! It has been a fun journey - here's hoping we will continue with another round of ABC Wednesday!
Y stands for so many things but I chose yardstick. Okay, there's nothing really flashy about it but it is a very useful tool. I use one at school and for art.
Well, actually I use a metrestick but usually call it a yardstick. I was brought up with inches, feet and yards and still measure that way when not at school!
The big question: Which is longer - a yardstick or a metrestick??
Give up? It is a metrestick!
A yardstick is 3 feet or 36 inches long. A metrestick is approximately 3,2808 feet long.
A metre stick is equal to: 39.4 inches
