### Key learning points

- The length or height of an object can be estimated using the standardised unit of metres.
- One hundred, 1 cm lengths are the same as 1 m.
- Ten, 10 cm lengths are the same as 100 cm, which is the same as 1 m.

### Common misconception

100 cm is bigger than 1 m.

1 m is equal in length or height to 100 cm. 100 cm make up 1 m. They are the same length or height.
