48 Task Cards organized into 4 differentiated sets of 12 to help students practice converting standard units of length (inches, feet, yards, miles)
Common Core Standard
5.MD.A.1 - Convert among different-sized standard measurement units within a given measurement system (e.g., convert 5 cm to 0.05 m), and use these conversions in solving multi-step, real world problems.

Task cards can be printed in a variety of ways depending on your personal preferences and available materials.
These cards look amazing in color, but also print well in grayscale. For those who must conserve ink/toner (like me), I have included a duplicate set with backgrounds removed.
Cards hold up best if printed on card stock or construction paper. Another option is to print them on plain paper and glue or laminate them to a heavier paper.
These task cards can be used to provide differentiation for your students. Each set uses the skill of converting measurements in a different way:
Set A includes single-step calculations and word problems without remainders or leftovers.
Set B requires the use of remainders expressed as a smaller unit and some 2-step problems.
Set C is made of single-step and multi-step word problems.
Set D requires converting measurements while finding the perimeter of a variety of polygons.
Teaching with Task Cards
Task cards are an awesome alternative to the classic worksheet. Just a few of the many ways task cards can be used are:
Play a Game
Games such as Scoot, Boom, and Around the Room are fun ways to use task cards with your students. You can also use the cards to play any generic board game where students must answer a question correctly to be able to roll and move ahead.
Task cards make great centers activities and can be self-checking if you provide access to the answer key.
Small Group or Partner Work
Task card sets can be given to small groups or pairs for students to work on together, and compare answers, or to help one another through the problems.
