Product Description
This resource will help your students practice Measurement Approximations for lengths in Metric and Customary Units. This game makes a great Guided Math Station! Your students will have a great time playing Emoji Sliders: Approximate Length Game while thinking and discerning about customary and metric measurement units.

My Emoji Sliders games are quick paced and the student in the lead changes every round. This is what makes all of my Emoji Sliders games a student favorite. Unlike a worksheet, this game can be used over and over again to reinforce this concept.

There are color and blackline versions of the game included.

I have included a helpful approximations reference page that you can keep with the game or have students glue into their math journal.

4.MD.A.1: Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two-column table.For example, know that 1 ft is 12 times as long as 1 in. Express the length of a 4 ft snake as 48 in. Generate a conversion table for feet and inches listing the number pairs (1, 12), (2, 24), (3, 36), ...

Why did I create this product?

The first Emoji Sliders game I created was to help one of my small groups practice equivalent fractions. They LOVED playing that game. They begged to play it every single time we met. What
makes the Emoji Sliders games so much fun is that the games are unpredictable. You could have the majority of the Emoji cards and lose them all in the last round when other players play their last card.

I created other versions of Emoji Sliders, such as this one, to cover concepts that benefit from repetitive play. Students don’t often think about measurement units and they need LOTS of
practice to build proficiency with them
. There is no better way to offer repetition than through games. Worksheets become mundane, but playing games never gets old. It is with our students’ full engagement that we can truly give them the repetitive practice they need.

This game is a perfect math station, but I have found it makes the perfect small group lesson as well.
