    A lesson I did with 7th graders that was fun was "Smile Metric Style" It isn't complicated but you can implement many other ideas with this. The students measure their own smile, using string or something else, in centimeters and cut out a paper strip the length of their smile. Each group tapes their smiles together and then the class. We added the length of each group and class and we discussed and figured mean, median, mode, outlier and graphed our results. We also figured milimeters and meters by converting our answer. We put all four classes together and our smile streched across the room!
