• Product Description
• StandardsNEW

Measurement activities are woven into this version of Jack and the Beanstalk (which is now available online for distance learning!) Fourth and fifth grade students solve math word problems involving elapsed time and customary unit conversions. They add, subtract, multiply, divide, compare, and solve multi-step problems.

Now you can reach every student in your classroom. Two versions offer parallel, differentiated learning. Conversion tables offer more support.

What's Included:

• Lesson plans
• Best practices
• Hook
• Two 16-page math activity books featuring Jack and the Beanstalk. (Copy back-to-back on four sheets of paper and fold.)
• Online stories for paperless option
• Response sheets
• Five conversion tables

Exercises:

• Multiply to find out how many pints Jack's cow gives each week then convert to quarts and gallons
• Calculate elapsed time to see if he will arrive at the market on time
• Convert inches to yards to see if he has enough rope
• Calculate elapsed time to see how long he has to wait for breakfast
• Subtract mixed measures to see how much the beanstalk grew
• Change pounds and ounces to determine how many trips Jack needs to make
• Calculate elapsed time to find out how long he has to eat his breakfast
• Exchange pounds for ounces then multiply to find out how much the gold is worth
• Convert gallons to cups to determine how much punch was in the vat
• Change pounds to ounces then multiply to find out how much he could earn each week from the hen's golden eggs
• Calculate elapsed time to find out how much time Jack has to study for his measurement test

Enjoy teaching customary conversions!

I'm committed to continual improvement. This resource was updated and enhanced on March 5, 2020.

Convert among different-sized standard measurement units within a given measurement system (e.g., convert 5 cm to 0.05 m), and use these conversions in solving multi-step, real world problems.
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. Represent measurement quantities using diagrams such as number line diagrams that feature a measurement scale.
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. For example, know that 1 ft is 12 times as long as 1 in. Express the length of a 4 ft snake as 48 in. Generate a conversion table for feet and inches listing the number pairs (1, 12), (2, 24), (3, 36),...
