Be prepared! Design your own metric conversion chart to keep in your binder for quick reference.
The metric system is a decimal system of weights and measures based on the meter for length and the kilogram for weight. Metric is used in all industrialized countries except the United States, where it is being adopted voluntarily. Invite students to make a handy resource tool for math and science projects.
Invite students to design their charts. Fold oaktag lengthwise to form a flap. Leave a margin on the left side. Punch holes in the margin so the folder fits in your binder. With Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils or Color Sticks, design and color the cover using geometric shapes, stripes, or a fun pattern. Erase sections to fill in designs in a contrasting color.
Students compile a list of conversions. Write out, or type and print, conversions for length, area, and volume. Use correct abbreviations and spellings. Cut out sections and glue them in place with a Crayola Glue Stick. Decorate reference pages.
Ask students to write a journal entry focused on how the metric chart can assist them with their learning.
