History of the metric system

A presentation to get pupils thinking a about the origins of the metric system.
There’s quite a lot of information in there, but I think its interesting so I’m going to make my pupils look at it!

There are no worksheets or ‘usual’ metric questions, but I’ve put some follow up questions and possible activities in the comments boxes on each slide. Please let me know if you have any better ideas as mine are a bit lame.

Most of the information is taken from Wikipedia so please let me know if you see any innacuracies!
