Activity 1: Indiana Bob and the Temple of Clues
Students join world famous adventurer Indiana Bob on a mission to find the Cup of Golden Chicken Soup. At each stop in the story, students must solve metric conversion problems to determine which path they should take next. It's sort of like a choose-your-own-adventure story (only with math).
The story is told through a series of cards which are hung up around the classroom. Students must search for the card they need and move from card to card to continue working their way through the story.
Activity 2: Metric Dominoes
Students play a game of “dominoes” against themselves to practice estimating sizes in metric units.
