Metric Mania!

Pages

Today 6th graders learned that scientists use the metric system for measuring length, mass, and volume.  Since today was all about length, we spent some time learning the major units of metric length (mm, cm, m, and km).  Do you know what each of those units stand for?  Then we practiced measuring length using meter sticks to measure objects around the classroom such as our shoes and our height.  Tomorrow we will be measuring mass using triple beam balances.
