Metric System Measurement Activity: Distance or Length 6 th Grade In class Assignment / Activity 8-17-10
Distance or Length Measurement Materials: 1. Science Journal 2. Ruler (use the unit that is given to you ) 3. Objects to measure Procedure: 1. You will be put in pairs and given items that you will need to find the length, width, or distance of. 2. You will record these items in your journal. Use the next slide as your guide
