Provide the reference sheet your students are accustomed to. These are generally aligned to the state test or use the reference guide inside a marble notebook. There are also free ones available on TpT.

Problem solving extension (for early finishers). These are two step problems involving using the conversion factor. For example, convert from cups to gallons and then solve for cost given the price per gallon.
- Exit Ticket - In problem 10 from the lesson, two boys made a bet as to who walks further. In class you convert together to find out how far one boy went, the exit ticket asks you to solve for the second boy and determine the winner. I always let students use their notes/handouts when completing an exit ticket.
