Product Description
To help students understand more about the metric system, they will look at it a variety of ways.
First, a poem about King Henry and his "obsession" with chocolate milk. Here they learn that each step is ten times bigger and a mnemonic to remember the order of metric prefixes.
Next, they will use the concept of money (it can even help them review counting coins and bills) to see how the decimal point moves left or right.
Following this activity they look at the Metric Staircase to help convert between the different metric units.
Then, they sort different measurements and decide what type of measurement it is and what prefix should be used.
Lastly, students use measurement to create ice cream and then make a root beer float (along the way they look at the three states of matter).
A great way to round out a unit on the metric unit.
