Time and measurements

Imperial or metric?

Thirty-two degrees Celsius or Fahrenheit? The difference is clearly measurable and will never again be a secret for youths. Together, we will explore the measuring units of temperature, money, volume, time and density through five fun, learning experiments, including the use of a laser thermometer, a giant calculator, measuring cups, a sun clock and an electronic scale. The differences between the metric and imperial systems are unveiled once and for all!

For 30 more minutes:

Add a length workshop in which your growing scientists will have the pleasure of measuring their size.

Objectives at the elementary level:

  • Make the distinction between the notions of time (hour, day, week, month, season, development of a chick, history, etc.).
  • Distinguish between the mass of an object (amount of substance) and its weight.
  • Classify solids according to their densities.
  • Distinguish between the three states of matter (solid, liquid and gas) and the necessary transformations (heat and cool) to achieve this.
  • Understand that volume can take many different forms.
  • Use simple measuring instruments (scale, spoon, measuring bottle and thermometer).
  • Understand the value of money (in the past and today).
  • Associate the cycle of day and night with the Earth’s rotation.
  • Associate the changing seasons with the rotation and tilt of the Earth.
