Objective: This activity tests students on converting between the different metric system length units including: millimeters, centimeters, decimeters, meters, and kilometers.
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 back to school themed metric length unit conversion puzzles in the form of a 4 x 4 puzzle. There are nine versions of the puzzle included so you can differentiate amongst different ability levels. Three puzzles contain 4 graphics, three contain 9 graphics, and three contain 16 graphics. The puzzles vary in the GRAPHICS only and not in the individual conversion problems. As the number of graphics increases so does the difficulty, as they do not help the student in constructing the puzzle as much.
Directions: Print out the gameboard on cardstock and have it laminated and cut prior to passing them out to individual students or to a group of students so they can be used in the future. 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.
