We're starting to work on the Metric System in class. Please follow the directions below to be prepared for class tomorrow!
Please watch this video from Bill Nye:
Google image search: "Metric System" Please write down what you learn from the images on paper (quick version, 30 words or less) or print out an image (just one) that you think is most helpful. If you want to share it on instagram, please hashtag it #misskmetric
Research: How many countries DON'T use the Metric System? Bonus: What are they?
Think about it: What are the benefits of the Metric System?
Be ready to talk about it: Do you think we should switch to the Metric System? Why or why not?
Size Comparison: Find approximate sizes of the base units in the Metric System. About how long is a meter? How heavy is a gram? How much is a liter?
Optional, Metric system film from 1975 (this will help you with the questions above):
From class today (nothing to do with this this evening!)
