Basic Unit: Meter
We reviewed the metric system of measuring distance, the meter. We compared is to customary measurement in order to gain some perspective about the two forms of measurement. We went over the following powerpoint with our "guided notes" first. Metric: Length Powerpoint Once completed, for practice we measured a few different things around the school using metric and then converted them to a different metric unit using the ladder method.

We also had homework practicing conversions. It would be best to use the ladder method.(see Friday's post) Along with this practice, there is a conclusion to write as well.
