This may sound really stupid, but, can anyone tell me the difference between a metric ruler and a meter stick???

A metric ruler is for measuring centimeters and millimeters, while a metric stick for for larger units. I believe a metric stick is 1 meter long.

Similar to the U.S. we have a ruler for measuring inches, and a yardstick for measuring feet and yards.

A yard is fairly close to a meter in length, not exact, but it gives you the general idea of how big it is.
