Description:

In this outdoor activity, learners measure familiar objects in nature to practice working with the metric system. The goal is for learners to develop their "metric senses" by measuring and estimating in metric units the mass, length, temperature, and volume of familiar objects. Can be adapted into an indoor activity on a rainy day.
