Included is a set of 30 multiple choice task cards. Each card lists an object to be measured and four metric units. The students are to decide which units would be best for the measurement.
Also included are three benchmark measurement cards. These cards give pictures for students to identify with for the different metric measurements. A card for liters, grams, and meters is included.
An answer key and student response sheet are also included.
These task cards were made to help students practice choosing an appropriate
metric unit to measure with after this skill has been taught. These cards can
be used in a center with individual students or small groups, or they could be used
for whole group instruction by placing the cards on an Elmo and allowing each
student to respond with pinch cards or on dry erase boards. The activity can also
be modified depending on student skill level by allowing students to use the included
benchmark cards or having them complete the task cards without the benchmarks.
