This is a simple activity that will allow the teacher to spice up a lesson on the Metric System. Students are actively engaged in measuring objects around the classroom using triple beam balances, graduated cylinders, and tape measures/meter sticks. When students have finished measuring, they practice Metric System Conversions for each object they measure. Very good for a beginning of the year or end of the year activity.
