Product Description
Customary Measurement: This bundle of customary measurement resources focuses on the U.S. customary measurements for length, weight, and capacity.
It includes:
- a 95-slide interactive PowerPoint on U.S. Customary Units of Measure (this includes a 7-page matching companion handout!)
- an interactive notebook entry
- 3 worksheets that match what was covered in the PowerPoint
- 2 worksheets with conversion tables
- a Concentration Game

The PowerPoint is highly interactive. There are four main sections in this PowerPoint:
1. Introduction to Measurement (definitions for length, weight, capacity, and unit) 12 SLIDES
2. Measuring Length with the U.S. Customary System (inches, feet, yards & miles) 26 SLIDES
3. Measuring Weight with the U.S. Customary System (ounces, pounds & tons) 26 SLIDES
4. Measuring Capacity with the U.S. Customary System (cups, pints, quarts, & gallons) 27 SLIDES

EACH of the last three sections includes slides that focus on the following skills:
- Conversions (example: 4 feet = 48 inches)
- Conversion tables
- Estimating Units of Measurement (example: estimating how many gallons are in a swimming pool)
- Comparing 2 measurements (>, <, or =)
- Ordering 3 measurements from greatest to least
- Ordering 3 measurements from least to greatest
- Multiple Choice Questions (ordering 4 measurements)
- Word Problems

Each section contains many practice opportunities!

(The PowerPoint is also fully animated, so that answers do not appear on the screen until the teacher has clicked the mouse.)

The craftivity is an ideal follow-up activity. First, students complete three worksheets that include the following skills:
- classifying units as lengths, weights, or capacities
- creating equivalent measurements (ex. 2 lbs. = 32 oz.)
- ordering measurements from least to greatest

After the worksheets are complete, students begin the fun task of assembling the craftivity! The completed craftivities can be hung on a bulletin board or in the hallway- they create a fun display that shows passers-by exactly what you have been learning in your classroom.

Five worksheets (with answer keys) are also included in this bundle: one for customary length, one for customary weight, one for customary capacity, and two with conversion tables.

Finally, a U.S. Customary Measurement Concentration game is a fun bonus item in this bundle!
