This resource gets your students thinking about and working with different units of measure in a fun logic puzzle task card. This resource is for linear units of measure, using the metric system.
Students will need a pencil to complete this activity (a ruler and/or metre stick is also suggested so students can use it as a visual reference).
This resource includes:
• Minds-On Task – this page can be used as a diagnostic, entrance slip, or a full group introduction to the task. I like to do this page with the whole group, projecting it so all can see, then letting the students work on individual whiteboards or their notebooks to answer the task.
• 12 Task Cards – these task cards make a great math station or partner activity, or you can also project each card and have students work on whiteboards for a full group activity or exit slip after a lesson. I like to use these to set up a math station with the task cards and have students answer on the provided recording sheet for an easy formative assessment for you.
• Journal Prompt – printed 4 to a page for easy photocopying, this journal prompt is designed for students to give a written response to a deep-thinking question. It can also be used as an oral prompt.
• Answer Page – students can self-check their answers during math stations, or you can use the page for more formal checks. The best part about the answer page is that it is a perfect match to the student recording page. Simply place the student recording page on top of the answer page in front of a window, or another light surface, so you can easily mark the recording page without having to measure each angle.
