Our Country's Dominance in Question

Teacher Page


This WebQuest was designed to allow students to become more familiar with the metric system of measurement and to realize that a political battle is being waged over the measuring system we use. Depending on the number of students in your classroom and the amount of groups you like to have, you can either add temperature to choose from, or just allow groups to double up on selections. Also, you can have two groups select the same measurement and take opposing sides, one for the metric system and one against, so the students can have their own debate on the subject. I would recommend the students giving their own opinion, especially if it differs from the position they defended.
