Interactive Math Lesson - Length Conversions with Metric Units

Help your students excel in basic measurement concepts when you use this interactive math lesson featuring metric length conversions at a fourth-grade level. Children will practice converting metric units of measurements, including millimeters, centimeters, meters, and kilometers. After your students complete this online math activity, they will be more proficient and confident in length conversions with metric units.

Your students will face a multitude of measurement challenges in this fourth-grade math game. Students may be asked to "Drag and drop the symbol that makes the number sentence true." They will decide, for example, if 23,000 meters is greater than, less than, or equal to 28 kilometers. Or they may be asked to complete a table showing two different units of measurement, such as meters and kilometers. In order to complete the table, they must convert the lengths in each row. Or students may be given a word problem like this one: "The length of the soccer field Lacey and her teammates play on is 110 meters. How many centimeters long is the soccer field?" If children need a little extra help answering a math question, they can click on the "Hint" button. When they get the question wrong, a detailed explanation page will show them the right answer accompanied by an easy-to-understand tutorial for how to obtain it.

All math lessons on "I Know It," including this online measurement activity, contain several handy features that help students make the most of their math practice sessions. For example, the speaker icon indicates our "read-aloud" feature, which is a great option for ESL/ELL students and children who are auditory learners. The progress-tracker in the upper-right corner of the practice screen lets students see how many math questions they have answered out of the total number of questions in the lesson. The score-tracker tells students how many points they have earned so far. I Know It math activities were designed with your students' success in mind!
