Do you need a way to have your students understand customary measurement?
This Common Core Aligned Lapbook should help.
4th Grade Common Core Standards Addressed:
4.MD.1- 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.
4.MD.2-Use the four operations to solve
word problems involving distances, intervals of time, liquid volumes, masses of objects, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or
decimals, and problems that require expressing measurements given in a larger unit in terms of a smaller unit.
Students create flapbooks to insert into a Lapbook. However, the flapbooks can also be inserted into a notebook.
Concepts included in lapbook:
Customary Measurement Term box fold includes:
customary system, length, weight, capacity
Tips for Customary Measurement Conversions booklet includes descriptions and conversion charts (partially to be completed by the student) of the following terms and concepts:
length, length conversions, weight, weight conversions, capacity and capacity conversions
Time box fold includes:
second, minute, hour, converting time
Customary Conversions booklet includes:
4 word problems- one each for length, weight, capacity and time.
In the center there is the "Big G" to be used to remember capacity conversions. Students color-code the letters.
Lots of great review and room for students to create their own examples.
For those of you who have copy limitations, I created an extra page for you to just print out the "Tips for Customary Measurement Conversions" boxes and the students can create their own flipbook with construction paper or sentence strips.
Hope you can use it!
