Students will learn to convert metric units by applying concepts in word problems. Exercises and worksheets incorporate length (meters), and optional practice offers more instructions on mass (grams) and volume (liters).
This math lesson is filled with fun hands-on non-standard measurement activities! The lesson begins with an interactive story then has students explore measurement using several different objects as their tools!
Challenge students to convert measurements between their metric counterparts! Students will relate the measurements to real-world objects. Use this lesson as support for the Converting Metric Measurements in Word Problems lesson.
Bigger, taller, shorter, or longer? In this spring lesson plan, students will compare two objects and create their own spring-themed comparison worksheet. They will draw pairs of pictures and come up with their own comparison questions.
Students will begin to calculate volume of different rectangular prisms using base ten cubes and then transition to using the formula V = L x W x H. Students will then practice using the legendary fifth grade activity, Cootie Catchers.
Get your students explaining estimations and measurements of liquid volumes and masses of objects! Use this lesson independently or alongside *Estimating Measurements of Mass and Volume Using Metric Units.*
