Nice way to show kids the difference between the relative weights of each unit. This is genius.

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.

Aren't the numbers backwards? kilo means 1,000; milli means 0.001.

Anne Merria Goodwin
We use the phrase, King Henry died unexpectedly drinking chocolate milk. Yes, they are backwards if you are representing what each prefix means. If they were thinking in terms of a meter stick, then no. For example, a meter stick has 1,000 mm. Not sure why you would do it that way. Good eye April!

April Lyons
We use "King Henry Died By (base unit) drinking chocolate milk. I was beginning to wonder if I was wrong!
