Students will go around the room to each "patient" (a stuffed animal) and based on the weight in pounds labelled on the patient they will need to calculate the correct dosage of medicine based on the card provided. Students will record answers and show work on the provided chart. Students must convert from pounds to kilograms for each patient before finding the correct dosage. A fabulous real-world application of how converting units is used in the medical field on a daily basis. Students stay engaged the entire class period!!!
