Measurement conversion can be a challenge and a bit boring, however this resource will provide students with interesting facts about hippos as they work to convert measurements of length, weight, capacity, and time to find out some fascinating facts about hippos such as:
*the width of a hippo’s mouth
*lifespan of an average hippo
*the average length of time a hippo spends submerged in water on a hot day
*the amount of water the average hippo drinks in one day
*the weight of an average hippo’s hide
*the average birth weight of a newborn hippo
To assist with student accountability, a printable student answer document is included- as we all know some students are not as productive in less structured settings, so printable answer documents provide a visual tool to remind students about the work they are expected to complete during a given amount of work time.
Student answer documents also provide ease when making differentiated assignments- by simply circling the numbered workspaces a student is to complete, you will eliminate any misunderstandings about assigned work!
Student answer documents are also excellent pieces of authentic work required for student portfolios, IEP, AIP documentation of differentiation as well as work examples for referral conferences, re-evaluations of placements, parent/teacher conferences, etc.
1) printable task card format for student self-checking if preferred
2) teacher friendly printable format for grading work assignments
Use these task cards at math centers, as math journal practice, during transitions, for early finishers, as test review, as assessment pieces, etc. The possibilities are numerous!
YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY OF THESE KINDS OF RESOURCES FOR RESTLESS STUDENTS! Happy Teaching!
