This product is a life saver! It lays out the standard perfectly and makes teaching it much easier. Thank you!
Thank you for a great resource for my students who are having difficulty with this concept. The students were very much engaged. :)


This measurement conversions standards-based (CCSS) lesson study will have your students learning about, discussing, and applying ideas of converting measures, both customary and metric, throughout the course of five days.

There are five classroom-tested lesson plans that detail everything you will need to do, STEP-BY-STEP, to teach your students about converting units of measure from smaller to bigger or bigger to smaller within like measurement units.

There are:

Folded Organizers for Interactive Journals
Reference notes for teachers
Sample anchor charts
Pictures of completed work and anchor charts
Measurement "Trick" poster for the classroom (with youtube link!) FREE IN PREVIEW!!!
Worksheet practice pages for students
Task Cards for students with recording sheet
A Multiple Choice assessment
Constructed Response assessment

There are also graphic organizers/worksheets for each day so that your students are able to apply their learning.

The five days culminates in a formal assessment, both multiple choice and constructed response, asking the students to take what they learned about converting measures and apply it in a test taking scenario, showing evidence of the strategies used (so important in these days of state testing and Common Core).

Throughout the course of the five days, the students will be taught not only the basic math skill, but also how to EXPLAIN their mathematical thinking. This will give them a good "bag of tricks" to pull from when they start to solve these problems on their own.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
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),...
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.
