Measurement

Why do we need to measure?
* To know how long something is...
* To know how tall, how wide..
* To compare sizes...
* To build... to cook... and more.

We measure CAPACITY (liquids)
liter = l.
milliliter = ml.

We measure TIME 
hours - minutes - seconds
years - months - weeks - days

We measure LENGHT (distance)
kilometers = Km.
meters = m.
centimeter = cm.

We measure WEIGHT
kilograms = kg.
grams = g.

Indigenous peoples of Chile

       A very long time ago, the countries we know today did not exist, there were groups of people who lived in the territory we now know as Chile. We call these groups indigenous peoples because they were the first inhabitants of Chile.
Some sedentary native peoples settled near the ocean, some near the mountain range, some others did not settle, they were nomadic.



Here we share some videos in spanish about indigenous children
