The International System of Units is called "SI"

centimeter (cm)
also spelled centimetre

1 one hundredth from a meter (0.01 m)
There are exactly 100 cm (centimeters)
in the Base Unit meter.
Use the symbol cm

1 centimeter
(
1 cm)

Remember, centi is the prefix
meaning
1 one hundredth of the
base unit meter.
So, 1 one hundredth of a
meter (0.01 m)
is simply written 1 cm

1 cm is about the width
of an average blouse
or shirt button.

1 cm is about the width
of black keys
on a standard piano.

1 cm is about the width
of your little fingernail.
  Like a dollar has 100 cents, a meter in length
also has 100 cm (100 centimeters)

Centimeters are precise for measuring
sewing patterns, your height, your waist
and for altering clothes.

Snowfall is measured in centimeters (cm)
Rainfall is measured in millimeters (mm)

Smaller Measurement from a centimeter

1 millimeter
(1 mm)

 Remember, milli is the prefix meaning
1 one thousandth (0.001).
So 1 one thousandth of the
base unit meter
being 1 millimeter is simply written 1 mm.

Larger Measurement from a centimeter

1 meter
(1 m)

Remember meter is the
base unit for Length
and all other Units are derived from it.
There are exactly 100 cm (centimeters)
in  1 m (meter)
and there are exactly 1000 mm
(millimeters in 1 m (meter).

Larger Measurement from a meter

1 kilometer
(1 km)

Remember, kilo is the prefix meaning
1000 times as much.
So, one thousand meters (1000 m)
being the length of 1 kilometer
is simply written 1 km which is pronounced
"KILL-oh-meet-ur" NOT "kill-AH-mit-ur".
