Your young forensic scientists add to and strengthen their measurement and conversion skills with these seven well-scaffold worksheets. Metric conversions, measuring length, area, and volume, reading thermometers, graduated cylinders, triple beam balances, and temperature conversions are all explained, explored, and practiced.
Before giving the learners the "Forensic Science Worksheet, Thermometers and Temperature Conversions," present and discuss the formulas for converting between Celsius, Fahrenheit, and Kelvin.
- Clever scaffolding builds learners' conceptual understanding of measurement
- Worksheets include explanations and plenty of practice
There is a mistake on the "Forensic Science Worksheet Metrics and Measurements," but it is easily fixed. The prefix deca is correctly spelled deka on the metric table. A second mistake on the Volume of a Rectangular Solid section is easily fixed by replacing the word area with volume in the directions for the practice problems.
