Product Description
This is a set of 7 measurement problems. Each of the problems have a real world backstory about the measurement that was taken. However, each person in the story made an incorrect measurement. Students work together to figure out what the mistake was and create a solution for the problem including what the correct measurement SHOULD be.

I used this as a 'board meeting' activity students worked on a whiteboard to create solutions to each problem and what the outcome should have been. Students worked in groups of 6, but I would recommend smaller groups of 3-4. Depending on your class size you may need to either create a few more problems, or double up the problems. Students then presented their problem to the class along with the solution.

These could also be used as task cards for early finishers if you are working on measurements in your science classroom.

Measurement tools for problems include thermometers, graduated cylinders, triple beam balances, metric ruler.
