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.
