Uncle Norm’s toy dinosaurs aren’t getting along, so he decides he needs a display case with two separate shelves. That way, the dinos won’t fight as much. Problem is, he doesn’t know how to build it. Alanna and Uncle Norm check in with Tim the tool man, who teaches them how to use precise measurements and the correct measuring tools to build a case for the dueling dinosaurs.

The Gist: This episode is about two of the most important frame of references used for linear measurement: the centimetre and the metre, and the standard tools for measuring these units. The focus is on when and how the centimetre and metre are used in real-world contexts.
