SIMPLE METRIC CONVERSION HELP! Kangaroos Hop Down Large Green Mountains Drinking Chocolate Milk?! They sure do when it's time to convert any metric units from Kilo- to Milli-! Students love this method of Metric Conversion!
It can be taught horizontally (like a number line) or with the students drawing an actual staircase with 7 stairs! I hope your students gain as much confidence as mine did with this helpful resource!
For teachers in Virginia, this resource correlates with SOL 5.8c!
This resource includes:
1 full page of notes for Metric Conversion using the staircase method
1 labeled staircase page
1 exit ticket page with space for students to draw their staircase
