Metric Measurement (Grades 4-6)

In our Metric Measurement lesson plan for grades 4-6, students learn about the metric units used to measure weight, length, and volume. Students also learn what the metric system is used for in the United States and practice measuring various classroom objects.

Our Metric Measurement lesson plan for grades 4-6 strengthens student understanding of the metric system. Students are asked to consider why the metric system is used alongside the standard measurement system and what each is used for in the United States. Students are also asked to measure a variety of things – physical objects in the classroom, lines printed on paper – as practice as well as practicing converting metric measurements from one unit to another in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to define metric measurement, identify the metric units used in weight, length, and volume, and convert from smaller/larger to larger/smaller units.

Common Core State Standards: CCSS.Math.Content.4.MD.A.1, CCSS.Math.Content.5.MD.A.1
