Many students benefit from hands-on, tactile approaches to learning. The kinesthetic element helps many students engage more in the lesson and make concrete connections to abstract ideas.
In this fun, hands-on learning activity, students will make a no-cook batch of play dough... but they must make all their measurements in metrics! Once the play dough is made, students will continue exploring the metric system with some hands-on measuring activities using their dough. This lesson includes instructions for making the play dough in metrics as well as a student activity worksheet.
This lesson includes:
*step-by-step instructions to make a batch of no-cook playdough measuring in metrics
*playdough activities to continue exploring the metric system
*student worksheet/ mini-lab guide
This is an excellent lesson for students who need a more tactile, hands-on approach to their learning
Although this lesson is more suitable to the home school environment, an adaption for the classroom learning environment is included
