The students will participate in events where they will have to measure using a ruler or a scale. The student will be measuring in customary units. After all the results are in, the students will convert the gold medal results into inches, feet, ounces, and pounds.
There is some prepping to do but I have listed all the materials you need. In this lesson, I have given you a day by day account of what to do. From doing this lesson with 3rd and 4th grade at my school, I have found this schedule and lesson to work best for me. Use it as a guide or follow exactly. For the medals, I printed them out on cardstock and hole punched and put a ribbon through them.
