Learn the Imperial/English System of Weight Measurement


Put sixteen ounces on a scale;
It’ll weigh one pound without fail.

Pick up sixteen ounces off the ground,
And you just lifted one pound.

And if a ball weighs sixteen ounces,
A pound hits the ground every time it bounces.

If you weighed two thousand pounds, you couldn’t run,
‘cause if you weighed that much you would be one ton!

But if you found treasure, it would be real fun,
If all that gold weighed up to one ton,

‘cause all that would make mounds and mounds,
As a ton is equal to two thousand pounds!

I looked up how many ounces were in a pound,
and sixteen ounces is what I found.

Then I stacked up pounds until they weighed a ton,
And it took two thousand until I was done.

Lots of things weigh about an ounce,
Like four quarters or a friendly mouse.

Lots of things weigh about a pound,
Like this bottle of soda that my teacher found.

Lots of things weigh about a ton,
Like a small car driven by a really hip nun!

I looked up how many ounces were in a pound,
And sixteen ounces is what I found.

Then I stacked up pounds until they weighed a ton,
And it took two thousand until I was done.
_______________________ is a provider of educational videos for kids which was founded by an innovative 5th Grade teacher who envisioned a new kind of classroom where students got energized for math class. Parents of his students even noticed their children singing mathematics songs around the dinner table well beyond school hours.

Seeing his students so enthusiastic when it was time for math was welcome, to say the least! But the epiphanous moment was when students were singing math songs all-day long like they were in the American Top 40!

Each of these rhythmic music videos from NUMBEROCK can be enjoyed right here on our YouTube Channel. We, hereby, cordially invite you to browse through the full library and hope you'll find that the songs make the maths* remarkably more fun.

We dare to believe that these math songs + videos can actually identify with elementary school children's increasingly finicky perception of what is cool and trendy. While each song is diverse in composition, most fit directly into the modern musical genres that excite young kids: genres such as Rap, R&B, Pop, Hip-Hop and even Reggae!

We're curious to see how these musical math videos will be used now that we have shared them with a broader audience. But whether you use these songs as a rich teaching resource or just to brighten up the school-day a bit, we hope that as our project continues you will eventually find a relevant song for each lesson plan and concept in the math curriculum taught throughout the academic year.

We'll be releasing new songs and videos regularly until eventually addressing all the math skills and concepts that a Common Core Curriculum demands from 3rd Grade to 4th Grade, and even 5th Grade to 6th Grade.

Our main goal is to make teaching and learning math more fun and more interactive. SchoolHouse Rock! has done this in other subjects for us in the previous generations, and many of us still enjoy watching their YouTube Videos which teach us about Government, Science, and English amongst other subjects.

If you dig us, please subscribe in order to enjoy our ever-evolving library of videos and make l̶e̶a̶r̶n̶i̶n̶g̶ rocking numbers more fun and successful!

For those interested in accompanying worksheets, we will be providing them shortly through and Teaching and Learning Resources such as Student Workbooks with Answer Keys will be available on AMAZON by the end of the year which will include exercises for each of our videos.

*Math and maths are both acceptable abbreviations of mathematics. The difference is that math is preferred in the U.S. and Canada, and maths is preferred in the England, Ireland, Australia, and most other English-speaking areas around the world.

This video addresses the following Common Core Standards:

4.MD (Solve problems involving measurement and conversion of measurements from a larger unit to a smaller unit.)

5.MD (Convert like measurement units within a given measurement system.)
