Product Description
**Be sure to check out our 5th (Fifth) Grade Common Core Activities Bundle, which now has over 50 of our Fifth Grade Common Core Math Activities including sorts, puzzles, worksheets, and seasonal activities! (Some product listings are below this product’s description)**

Objective: This activity tests students on converting between the different U.S customary length units including: inches, feet, yards, and miles.

Standard: This puzzle is aligned with the following fifth grade common core standard:

CCSS.Math.Content.5.MD.A.1—Convert among different sized standard measurement units within a given measurement system.

Included are two versions of a 4 x 4 unit conversion puzzle. There are scrambled versions and the corresponding answer keys. To complete the puzzle the students must match up the equivalent metric system length units. For example, one piece will say 3 ft on one side so the student will match it up with the piece that says 36 inches.

There are two versions of the puzzle included so you can differentiate amongst different ability levels. One puzzle does not have any units listed around the outside of the puzzle, making constructing the grid easier. The second puzzle repeats some of the values on the outside, challenging the students to use their inductive reasoning skills to complete the puzzle.

Directions: You can either conduct this activity as a cut and paste activity by passing out the scrambled versions to students, or print out the gameboard on cardstock and have it laminated to save for future use . Cut out the sixteen pieces and pass them out to individual students or to a group of students. The students must match up the equivalent units to complete the 4 x 4 Grid.

What has been successful for us is to give points for correctly completing the puzzle, and extra credit points for the first few groups that finish. The Roman numerals are there so that you can quickly check for accuracy.
