Metric and Customary Units of Measurement

 How do you teach students the difference between metric and customary units of measurement?  One of the activities I use is the graphic organizer shown below.
 I find that having students see the whole picture of what we want them to learn in measurement is important. I would begin by filling in the chart together.  I have used this as a scavenger hunt with food packages either in class or as homework.  To download the Unit of Measurement chart, please visit this post at Artistry of Education.
