Product Description
Use these 20 word problem task cards with your 4th grade or 5th grade students for a fun, engaging summer-themed activity! Have your students dress the part as they work through summer themed math word problems for converting customary measurements (ounces and pounds, inches, feet, and yards, and ounces, cups, pints, quarts, and gallons). Students will also practice basic multiplication and division required when converting measurements. Turn your end of year math review into a celebration by transforming your classroom into a beach, luau, or summer vacation spot.

These task cards have been used successfully with 4th and 5th graders. With these "Summer Slide" themed word problem task cards, you can "Slide into Summer" at the end of the year with your 4th graders OR savor a few more days of summer vacation during your first week of school with 5th graders.

Word problems focus on fun summer themes like visiting famous theme parks, hanging out at the beach, ice cream, summer cookouts, summer fruits, and family road trips. Word problems use real-world data and facts when appropriate. Check out the preview file to see some example questions!

✔ 20 task cards focused on Customary Measurement Conversions (customary capacity, customary weight, and customary length)

✔ 4 "summer fun facts" task cards (just for fun, throw these in for students to read along with their math problems)

✔ Student recording sheets

This set also comes in a "Summer Slide Bundle" that contains 60 task cards.
