This resource includes 24 task cards (IN Color and BLACK & WHITE FORMAT FOR COPIER FRIENDLY PRINTING) using gram, kilogram, and liter in real world word problems with practice in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division.
As a BONUS, task cards are provided in three formats:
1. as full size slides (in color and B/W) for projection on a whiteboard
2. as reduced size task cards -2 per sheet-in both color and B/W
3. as mini-size task cards –in both color and B/W
Each task card also provides an optional component, "Extended Thinking", to address differentiated learning levels in the classroom, --giving you the option of 48 problems instead of just 24.
STUDENT ACCOUNTABILITY/PRINTABLE STUDENT ANSWER DOCUMENT
A printable student answer document is provided to assist with student accountability-which is sometimes a problem when students are working in less structured settings such as centers or small groups. It also provides the structure and organization for some students who have spatial issues when computing on plain paper.
DOCUMENTATION MADE EASY!
Printable student answer documents are great to use as authentic student work examples when compiling data for portfolios, conferences, proof of modification, etc.
Differentiation is easily taken care of by using the printable answer document to make specific task card assignments as needed per student.
ANSWER KEYS ARE PROVIDED!
Two types of answer keys are provided-
task card format- for student self-checking if preferred
printable-teacher-friendly cards for grading as assignments
This resource can be used in a variety of ways:
at math centers
as collaborative work for small groups
projected on the whiteboard as a whole class assignment
during transition time
as math journal work
as meaningful engagement for early finishers
as assessment tools for benchmark competency checks
You can never have too many of these activities as you students progress through the year!
