This unit has a three sets of cards where students need to convert into a bigger or smaller (indicated by an arrow on each card) unit of measurement (length, weight, capacity). Also a set for each with the abbreviations is included. I have included programmable cards for everything so there's no limit to the possibilities. There are also 3 worksheets to check for individual student understanding. The answer keys are included.
This is set up to be a quick daily activity for a week. This can be used for an interactive bulletin board, math center, or fun review/differentiation. With so many programmable possibilities it is easy to differentiate.

Converting Customary Units of Measurement
Copy all cards on card stock (or on paper and laminate). Have students match cards with the equivalent measurements.
Option: Do just one type of measurement (capacity, weight or length) for each lesson.
Option: Give students only one card and tell them what to convert it to (ex. 18 ft. = ___ yards).
