Capacity vs. Weight: 20 challenging word problem cards

Choosing the appropriate measure for capacity or weight is tricky, but these 20 cards can help! Use them orally in small groups, or individually as a practice station in Math Daily 3 or in Guided Math. Another option is to use one card at a time with the entire class. Students can answer on notebook paper and track the cards they have completed on the included recording sheet. An answer key is also included. In addition there are 3 whole class games to play with the cards.

Use these 20 multiple choice task cards to practice choosing the appropriate unit of measure for liquid volume (capacity) or weight. A student answer sheet for students to record their answers is included along with QR codes on each card for self-checking. These task cards are perfect for test prep and will work well at Guided Math centers, BUILD, Daily 3 Math stations, for partner work, or with the whole class games. Use them with PLICKERS to assess the class!

These cards will look best in color, but will also print out fine in black and white. Simply print and cut along the guidelines. Laminate and use them again and again. Alternatively, you could print black and white cards on cardstock. Keep them in a baggie or whole punch and put on a ring
