metric

My textbook does a really long chapter with standard measurementinch, foot, yd, mi., ounce, pound, and liquid measurement plus metric, time and temperature. The first year I taught it my kids were so overwhelmed with numbers and conversions that I decided the next year to break the chapter into 3 parts. It's still a lot of numbers to remember, but it sure makes it easier. It is just hard to teach this to them. They try so hard!!!! I try to get as many hands on lessons as possible so that they have something tangible to relate to. I start metric this week and am dreading it!!! No words of wisdom here, just feel your concerns.
