The PowerPoint begins having the students describe the unit of measurement from a series of slides. The students see a gallon of milk, 65 mph sign, Quarter Pounder with cheese, inches, yards, degrees Fahrenheit. The pictures are then redisplayed with their Metric equivalent. We are then introduced to Chuck E' Cheese who represents the U.S Customary System of Measurement and Yoda who represents the Metric System. Chuck E' Cheese has the students add the number 12 several times and the mathematics gets difficult quickly. Yoda then gives a similar problem that uses the number 10. The math is very simple as students just move the decimal place. Yoda eventually says goodbye to Chuck E' Cheese with his light saber. Yoda provides wisdom throughout. This duet is both fun and educational. The PowerPoint goes on to show how most of the world uses the Metric System while basically only the U.S. does not. The U.S. Customary system is broken down unit by unit describing some history (i.e - the mile is a Roman unit based on 1000 paces of a Roman Legion) A series of slides present the U.S. Customary System and students mark out these from a series and replace with their Metric equivalent. A great video link is provided which shows the cast of American Choppers building a bike and arguing over fractions of an inch (A good case for using the Metric System) The PowerPoint then describes the base units of the Metric System in a series of step by step slides. A series of hidden box games have the students guess a relevant picture form the slideshow. Each slide removes boxes and the student guess about the picture beneath.
