King Henry Math Conversion Chart

Do you need some help converting metric units? If students can remember the acronym, KHDUDCM then they can convert metric units. But how do you get your students to remember the acronym, KHDUDCM? I use the saying, King Henry Died Unexpectedly Drinking Chocolate Milk. Kids seem to remember this saying. If you wanted to know how many meters were in kilometers, you would use the chart below.

1 kilometer is equal to 1,000 meters. Move the decimal point over 3 spaces. If you wanted to know how how many centimeters were in 6.32 millimeters. Move the decimal to the left 1 space to equal 0.632 centimeters. 

Students will not be able to use the chart during testing time. Students will need to remember the acronym to help them convert metric units.

  1. King Henry Died BY Drinking Chocolate Milk is the way I always learned and taught it -- B meaning BASE - but I love yours because a death by chocolate milk is quite unexpected indeed! I just found you on the AZ blogger linky and had to follow you as a fellow Arizona gal!
