Product Description
Measurement Conversions

Customary Measurement Conversions Battleship Cards make solving multi-step word problems with CUSTOMARY conversions fun! Included are 24 challenging multi-step word problem cards and a single-player battleship board for students to solve as they work their way through each problem.

As the teacher, you will place the cards all around the room. Students will solve the customary measurement conversion problems on each card. Then, students will use their answers to determine where each battleship is located on their board.

These cards support Common Core standard 5.MD.A.1: Convert among different-sized standard measurement units within a given measurement system, and use these conversions in solving multi-step, real world problems.

Included with this Customary Measurement Conversions Battleship Cards set:
    • Instructions for use
    • 24 multi-step word problem cards
    • "Battleship Board" sheet
    • Answer sheet
    • Answer keys

In order to save ink, the graphics on these cards are black and white. The cards look best when printed on colored paper, as shown on the cover image.

These cards can also be used just like normal task cards without the battleship board. An additional set of the task cards without the battleship coordinates (same problems) is included. Battleship is just meant to be a fun incentive for solving the problems!
