For those of you that are familiar with the Story of the Metric King, meet the prequel, "The Twelve-Toed King". We know that when kids hear stories they can remember information better. Students have a hard time memorizing simple units of measurement, expecially when they've been "trained" in the base ten world! This is a powerpoint story of how we came to use this silly system that begins with inches and feet. The engaging powerpoint will keep your kids entertained, and the teacher's script will help you expand the conversation.
Enjoy and have fun!
