#### Why haven't I done this before? Kids need to see before they remember- this hands on math measurement is fantastic for kinesthetic learners

#### Nice way to show kids the difference between the relative weights of each unit, in Canada we would use kilograms and grams of course! Try this with volume and capacity. It is a great way to connect to a referent for each unit of measurement.

#### Duh! Why haven't I done this before? Kids need to see before they remember. LL Kilogram, pound, ounce. weight measurement

#### 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

#### idea to show kids the difference. I would do it with gram and kilogram

#### idea to show kids the difference= grams, milligrams, kilograms

#### Kilogram vs. Pound vs. Ounce: idea to show kids the difference

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.
