Sweet Baby Jesus, I love the Giants!
I teach the metric system in both math and science and not going to lie, it isn’t one of my favorite things to teach! I have a lot of different activities that I do with the students and one that I have found helpful is this metric measurement activity.
Students work with a small group and estimate the length of different objects at different stations. I use objects I find around the room– different books, shoes, snacks, etc. They have to estimate and then find the actual measurement. There are some follow up questions too that focus on the importance of estimation and working as a group. This activity is usually complete in about one period!
