Metric Activities, Grades K-6.
Draper, Bob, Comp.
This pamphlet presents worksheets for use in fifteen activities or groups of activities designed for teaching the metric system to children in grades K through 6. The approach taken in several of the activities is one of conversion between metric and English units. The majority of the activities concern length, area, volume, and capacity. A bulletin board idea for introducing the Celsius scale is included. In addition to the worksheets, the pamphlet includes a brief history of the metric system and rationale for the United States' adoption of it, and a list of materials and audio-visual aids available to teachers in the San Diego City Schools.
