Our Metric Measurement lesson plan for grades 1-3 introduces students to the metric system and how it’s used. During this lesson, students are asked to identify which unit of measurement would be appropriate for measuring different things, in order to test their understanding of the lesson vocabulary. Students are also asked to answer questions about different metric units of measurement and draw a picture that represents each unit.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define metric measure and identify the units of measure within the metric system for length, volume, and weight. The students will also be able to distinguish between the different units of measure in the metric system.
