As part of their study of the metric system, Wyoming Seminary fourth grade students recently designed and organized a Metric Olympics, which included a series of events and activities that used measurement. Events such as the long jump, paper clip chains, gram guessing, race car rally and other events allowed the students to compete and measure their efforts, using the metric system. The students designated judges for the events and awarded first, second and third place ribbons.
