### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Are you looking for an organized PowerPoint to use to introduce your students to U.S. customary units of measurement? If so, this highly interactive 95-slide PowerPoint may be exactly what you are looking for! It is fully animated. Answers do not appear on the screen until the teacher clicks the mouse. Plus, it includes many test prep elements!!

The PowerPoint contains four main sections in this PowerPoint:
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! Personally, I plan to introduce each of the sections above on different days.

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

This PowerPoint comes with a BONUS interactive notebook entries. Check out the PREVIEW to view various PowerPoint slides, and the interactive notebook entries. (Please remember, though, that the purchased PowerPoint will be animated.)

Also, this PowerPoint cannot be edited due to the copyright requirements made by the contributing artists (clip art, font, background).
