This item contains 7 story problems that help students gain a stronger understanding of measurement concepts found in the Common Core Math Standards. A consistent storyline runs through the seven problems and offers children a scenario and cast of characters that they can follow as they complete their work. This PDF also has a link to my pinterest page that includes a series of visuals I use in conjunction with the story problems. The visuals provide a simple, concrete way for children to grasp the meaning of a given unit of measure. In addition, this item contains an answer key and specifies the Common Core Math Standards that these word problems address. The problems featured in this packet squarely address two 4th grade measurement standards. The problems offer an advanced challenge to 3rd grade students and a nice opportunity for 5th graders to practice using measurement concepts in an authentic context.
