This product will save you time as there are three teacher led lessons on customary and metric measurements. Lessons are introduced with guided notes and/or examples. Students will stay engaged as they fill in missing parts of the notes and examples.
A hands-on activity is included to help the students learn the relationships of gallons, quarts, pints and cups.
1. Teacher Led Lesson – The teacher will introduce customary and metric units of measurement involving length, weight, capacity (liquid volume), and time. Students will record the conversion factors, and they will identify the appropriate unit to be used when measuring a certain length, weight or capacity.

3. Teacher Led Lesson – Students will be taught how to convert larger measurements to smaller measurements in a single measurement system. Tables, diagrams, patterns and multiplication are used to find the equivalent measurements. Independent practice is included.
4. Teacher Led Lesson – Three guided examples are used to help the students with word problems involving measurements. Eleven independent practice problems are included.
Detailed answer keys are included.
