Title: Measurement Interactives
Description:

This measurement menu is comprised of 11 interactives teachers can use with students to practice converting within the customary and metric systems of measurement. Students practice converting measures of length, weight, and capacity, as well as determining which unit of measurement is appropriate for a given object. The interactives are available to be played in relaxed mode or timed mode for an additional challenge.

This activity results from the ALEX Resource Gap Project.

Title: Horrendous Soup
Description:

Horrendous Soup is a game in which students have to make a recipe for the most disgusting soup they can imagine. Students progress through the game by adding ingredients to the soup. Some of the ingredients are measured in capacity, some are measured in mass, and some are measured in distance. This is a way to reinforce metric conversion skills. To successfully print out the recipe, students must demonstrate the ability to convert the amounts of ingredients to other metric units. For example, liters to milliliters and vice versa, grams to milligrams and vice versa, and millimeters to centimeters to meters.
