About the Product:
This product comes with 48 colorful Spring-Themed Task Cards for Converting Units of Measurement. The Task Cards support the following 4th Grade Standards:
CCSS.4.MD.1.1 Know relative sizes of measurement units within one system of units including Km m, cm; kg, g; lb. oz; L, 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.
CCSS.4.MD.1.2 Use the four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals. Represent fractional quantities of distance and intervals of time using linear models.
They can be printed in color or as grayscale black and white. I suggest laminating the cards and printing on card stock so they will last longer. However, I did not do this and printed on regular 8.5 x 11 and then laminated. This worked perfectly fine if you do not have card stock handy (as I did not-hindsight is 20/20, right?).
After laminating, you can use a book/binder ring to attach the chards. They can then become part of your Math Center as a rotation, small group, tutoring, or for review. Another suggestion for using this is to not expect students to complete all of the cards, especially your struggling students. A blank Answer Sheet is included that students can just write the number for each problem. This is wonderful to use as an early finisher task. Some of the problems require multiple steps, which will be useful with higher level students. My students still work on our Division is SNOW much fun! Task Cards when they finish an assignment, though the snow has long melted (or never arrived since we live in Florida). If you decided to print Black and White, these problems could also be glued in students’ math journal.
I hope you enjoy this product as much as we did!
