It's a measurement war! Which is better--English Standard Units, or the SI Metric Units? Put the students to a test.
This activity is designed to look like a lab, in essence. The students make a hypothesis about which is easier--using Standard Units or Metric Units.
Some will realize this is a trick question; others will stick with what they know best.
The testing section asks them to convert from yards to inches and miles to yards. Then, they are tested using the same numbers but from meters to centimeters and kilometers to meters.
Students then write a conclusion about this particular set of questions.
