Building a Meter: Comparing units.

Unit 2: Metric Measurement
Lesson 4 of 18

Objective: SWBAT show and explain the units within a meter (mm, cm, dm) and compare their relationship to each other.

Big Idea: In this "just too fun" lesson, place value blocks take on a new meaning as they are used to build a meter. Then, students create an assessment video explaining the relationship between mm, cm and dm to the meter.
