• Complete simple metric conversions using a Metric Prefixes Table (ex. Convert 1 km = 1,000 m).
• When given a set of measurements, determine which metric measurement is larger using a Metric Prefixes Table.

Items:
(All items compiled in 1 PDF document. Document cannot be edited.)
• Metric Prefixes Table (full sheet & half sheet size available)
• Metric Basics
• Metric Basics – KEY
• Simple Metric Conversions – Practice #1
• Simple Metric Conversions – Practice #2
• Simple Metric Conversions – Practice #1 & #2 – KEY
• Where’s that Metric Unit?

Additional Required Material:
(These items are not included in the purchase.)
• “Where’s that Metric Unit?”
o Everyday Items that can be found at home, the grocery store, or pharmacy that contain metric measurements in the ingredient list. Recommend using shampoo as an example for students.

Directions:
• Give each student a copy of the “Metric Prefixes Table,” and assign the “Metric Basics” WS.
• Use the “Simple Metric Conversions – Practice #1 & #2” as a warm-up, exit-ticket, or HW.
o Recommend using one of the “Simple Metric Conversions” as a brief warm-up before introducing dimensional analysis.
• Assign “Where’s that Metric Unit?” for HW or extra credit.
o Before giving the assignment, show students a shampoo bottle. Point out the metric unit (the volume in milliliters). Pass the shampoo around the class and allow students to see the metric unit. (Note: Any item with a metric measurement may be used instead of shampoo.) Do not allow students to use the example item on the assignment.
o Students will turn in the assignment and show the teacher the item OR a picture of the item. The teacher will stamp OR sign the page indicating that the student brought the item/picture. Recommend that teachers do NOT collect pictures/items.
