The purpose of this activity is to provide an engaging enrichment activity for students learning about the metric system. This activity is meant to move your students away from more worksheets to using their creativity by thinking of a booth idea for Metric City’s Annual Booth Fair. This could be used as an enrichment activity at the beginning of the unit for early finishers, or as a culminating activity for the whole class!
