What educators are saying

This was a great resource! Very helpful. I loved the differentiated activities to challenge some of my students. Thank you!


This Metric System bundle has everything you need to dive into everything from kilometers to milliliters!

A set of 20 task cards for converting metric measurements within the metric system. One activity (Metric Maddness) has students determine the correct unit of measure to make a math sentence true. "What Would You Do?" has students explaining what they would do to solve the problem and solving it (telling whether to multiply or divide as well as which way the decimal moves).

Perfect centers, small group activities, or individual work to get your students to master all things metric system. Several varieties of metric system charts are included as well!

The units of measure focus on converting between the following: LENGTH kilometers, meters, centimeters, millimeters MASS kilograms, grams, milligrams, VOLUME kiloliter, liter, milliliter.

A new activity has been added called Metric Scaffolding Cards!There are 20 cards that include all of the units (kilo-to milli).Students find the missing measurement values and the number of missing values increases as they work through the cards. This activity uses all measurements and is an "ah-ha!" activity for students who struggle with converting measurements. It is a fantastic introductory activity as well as review.

Be sure to check out the preview above!
