#### Math idea to show kids the difference

#### idea to show kids the difference in weight measurements.... For that future career in drug trafficking

#### Nice way to show kids the difference between the relative weights of each unit. It would be great to bring in scales and have kids weigh and label the bags themselves, then leave them in the classroom where they can see them, or maybe make a video of the process to post on a class blog, or share with other classrooms. Could also be used with school garden produce (would have to photograph then use up, or use something such as dried beans).

#### To wrap up our Measurement unit, we have been learning about weight. I have a hard time teaching this skill in the past because it's difficult to help kids to realize how much is an ounce, pound, gram, kilogram... And then it dawned on me:I had this HUGE bag of rice in my closet (because doesn't everyone have rice in their closets at school?), so I weighed out an ounce, pound, and kilogram, put them into Ziplock bags and passed them around the circle

Here's a nice foldable on the metric system. Includes measurement information related to science.

### Teachers Notebook

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.

#### Math and Christmas! Great idea! Christmas non-standard units of measurement activity to practice counting, estimating, and greater than, less than..... but would need to make it a little less-Christmas-y for my public school system..but a good starting point
