This version is Common Core aligned to the Measurement and Data standard 4.MD.A.1: "Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including km, m, cm; kg, g; lb, oz.; l, ml; hr, min, sec. Within a single system of measurement, express measurements in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit. Record measurement equivalents in a two-column table. For example, know that 1 ft is 12 times as long as 1 in. Express the length of a 4 ft snake as 48 in. Generate a conversion table for feet and inches listing the number pairs (1, 12), (2, 24), (3, 36), ..."

In my classroom, we use Find a Friend in many ways:

-As a fun alternative to independent practice

-As a review before quizzes

-For spiral review of previously learned concepts

-Prior to high-stakes testing

Depending on the concept, students may spend 15-30 minutes completing the activity.

An answer key and directions for this activity are included.
