PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A highly engaging whole-class activity where students compare and convert measurements within the Metric system! Each worksheet represents a small section of the big picture! This task ensures individual accountability (every worksheet is different) while harnessing collaborative motivation (Every worksheet is needed for the mosaic). The end result will look spectacular hanging up in your classroom, and your students will be proud!

MATH INVOLVED:
◾Students compare and convert common metric units of length (km, m, cm, mm), volume (kL, L, mL), and mass (kg, g, mg).
◾Both full unit names and their abbreviations are used, to build students' familiarity.
◾Each worksheet contains 12 problems similar to these (just an example.. every sheet is different!):

0.000083 kg to mg

0.001 kL + 1000 mL

38000000 milligrams + 14000 grams

______ L = 0.034 kL

The smaller measurement:
44 m vs 4.4 km

The larger measurement:
18 mL vs 0.000000018 kL

0.044 kL + 18000 mL

97000 mg - 0.001 kg

______ m = 4700 cm

If you like this product, be sure the check out the whole Collaborative Math Mosaic directory, sorted by topic!

The student buy-in factor is HUGE with these worksheets; they all want to see the finished picture come together!

Leave the picture a secret or show it for motivation… it’s your call.

All my “Colouring by…” worksheets use standard pencil-crayon colours found in the Crayola 24 pack. For best results, use the exact colour name match (and encourage quality colouring!). Perhaps a class set of pencil crayons would be a fun math department investment!

Feedback, suggestions, and frontline stories are always welcomed!
