CCSS Math 5.MD.A.1 asks students to convert various units within the same measurement system. This staircase helps students think about how metric units relate to one another. This poster shows the units equal to one meter, liter, and gram at the center of the staircase. Each step ascending the staircase is 10 times larger than the one below it. Each step descending the staircase is 1/10 or ten times smaller than the one above it.
The poster is designed to be displayed in the classroom. A student reference sheet is included in this set for students to keep in their folders or notebooks to refer to when solving problems that require conversion of units of the metric system. My students find this student sheet very useful especially when needing to convert decimals.
