I use this as an introduction to converting measurement
Lengths. The first step towards success is being able to choose
The correct operation! . Have students use this at a station,
as a race between table groups, or use it to intervene or reteach.
follow up with the independent pracitce.
Teks supported by this activity include:
4.8 Geometry and measurement. The student applies mathematical process standards to select appropriate customary and metric units, strategies, and tools to solve problems involving measurement.
4.8(A) identify relative sizes of measurement units within the customary and metric systems
4.8(B) convert measurements within the same measurement system, customary or metric, from a smaller unit
into a larger unit or a larger unit into a smaller unit when given other equivalent measures represented in a table
