This Measurement Lesson is the perfect way to teach your students how to convert between customary and metric units of length, weight, and capacity.

I use the PowerPoint lesson to teach my students about units of measurement and how to convert between units.

The Measurement PowerPoint Includes:

  • 110 Slides
  • The lesson is scaffolded; therefore, it builds upon itself. It starts by reviewing both customary and metric units of length, weight, and capacity before teaching students how to convert between the units.
  • By the end of the lesson, students will be able to solve two step conversion word problems.
  • This PowerPoint is visually engaging - it includes a video and various website links to keep students engaged.

This lesson is INCLUDED in my Complete Measurement Unit with Lessons and Interactive Notes

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
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),...
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.
