This is a very simple lab activity for students who are just beginning to study the metric system and are learning to use lab equipment. This activity involves only the metric units of volume and temperature. Students will answer questions about a graduated cylinder and a thermometer. Students will measure the volume of several items. Follow up questions involve metric to metric conversions and metric to English conversions. Students will use dimensional analysis.
