Here’s a challenge. Learn the prefixes in the metric system. In order. In one minute. Go.
Kilo, Hecto, Deca, Deci, Centi, Milli.
Not so easy, right? But with helpful mnemonics (for kids and adults alike), you’ll be able to remember complex groups of information with ease. Try the metric system again, but this time with the story of King Henry: King Henry Died Drinking Chocolate Milk. Much easier to recall a kings sweet slurping habits than arbitrary prefixes, and if you know the first letters correspond, you’ll remember the facts.
With this lesson plan, students will harness the power of non-rhyming mnemonics and then write their own to remember important information. Because once you’ve mastered the basic facts in a subject, you can get into the fun stuff.
