Looking for a metric system bundle that is a great way to get your student's back to school brains primed and ready to begin the new year? This dimensional analysis unit will get your class off onto the right foot. Or meter. :) Even if you don't teach the metric system as a separate unit, you'll find that you can use these materials throughout the year as review, enrichment, or as a part of some great emergency sub plans.
This metric system unit focuses on metric to metric and English to metric conversions for prefixes kilo through milli and standard English measurements such as miles and feet.
In this unit, you get:
1. Five worksheets of varied difficulty with answer keys – there is a word story worksheet, three worksheets that allow students to practice their skill at conversions, and one worksheet that combines converting units with comparisons between the size of various quantities
2. Three powerpoints in all - two powerpoints (27 total) accompanied by guided notes for your students – the powerpoints are colorful and created with animations so that students can concentrate on a piece of the information at a time. You won’t get the “head-down-madly-copying” phenomena that so often occurs with powerpoint! Instead, you will be able to guide your students through the powerpoints at your (and their) pace
3. The third powerpoint is a jeopardy-style game for metric system review – 25 questions in all with the topics, “Units,” “What’s Appropriate?” “Prefix Values,” “Less than Greater Than,” and “Convert This!”
A reference sheet for students with metric conversion factors is also included.
The preview is every worksheet and powerpoint in pdf form (watermarked and copyright protected) so you can evaluate the appropriateness of this product for your needs.
