With the start of our new measurement unit, and our focus on the "metric staircase" this week (see last post), I thought it was only fitting that we complete the metric staircase as a foldable in our math journals. On the outside of the foldable we recorded the metric prefixes, and on the inside we recorded the mnemonic device, "King Henry Does Usually Drink Chocolate Milk", as well as the numerical values (when the base unit is 1). The still seems a little plain to me - too much white space inside. Does anyone have any great ideas on what we could add to them? Thursday and Friday we spent a lot of time working on the actual conversions - I've got a neat conversion activity for our journals planned for Tuesday. I can't wait to share it with you in my next math journal post!
