Ideas for home
- When doubling or tripling a recipe, use multiplicative comparison language: “We need two times as much rice as the recipe calls for, so how much rice is that?”
- Take turns estimating small lengths or short distances, and then use a meter stick or metric tape measure to check your estimates.
- Notice together how ×10 and ÷10 work in the metric system. Think of a measure in one metric unit (3 m 23 cm) and practice figuring out what that measure would be in other units (3 m + 23 cm = 323 cm = 3,230 mm; 6 km + 8 m = 6,008 m = 600,800 cm).
- If you are not familiar with the metric system, we encourage you to learn about it along with your child by practicing conversions between kilograms and grams, liters and milliliters, and meters and millimeters. Check conversions using an online conversion calculator.
