I've planned a lesson for my Year 5 class to investigate the equivalences between metric and imperial units (as part of the new 2014 curriculum). We will be investigating units of capacity, mass and length!
We will set up a weigh house, design centre, how tall...? station, and bottling plant to practically discover the equivalences.
I also have a SMARTboard flipchart which I will try and upload that goes alongside the plans and resources.
I hope that it proves useful to British and international teachers alike!
