Product Description
A 3-page worksheet designed to teach students how to perform basic metric conversions using the linear method, also known as the staircase or King Henry Doesn’t Usually Drink Chocolate Milk method. The worksheet also provides nearly 30 review questions for students to practice their technique.

I use this as a reading and review worksheet that follows my PowerPoint presentation product entitled PPT - The Metric System and Metric Conversions, which I use to introduce the topic to students. After showing the relevant PPT slides to my class and viewing a brief video clip, I hand out this activity for students to work on for the remainder of the lesson and for homework.

This product is part of a larger suite of metric conversion products. Links to these products are found below.
