  1. This 5th Grade Math Bundle will completely simplify the way that you teach math! When Common Core standards came in, I needed a way to teach my fifth graders the standards in a way that was both engaging and scaffolded. Every lesson starts out simple and builds upon previous knowledge. Each unit inc

Measurement Conversions: Customary and Metric Length, Weight, and Capacity

Have you ever finished teaching a math lesson that kind of ended in a disaster? Maybe it's only me! After a few of these disasters, I started changing the way that I taught math to my students. I realized that I just had to make my lessons more engaging.

This unit includes everything that you will need to teach measurement. It was very successful in my classroom!

This Unit Includes:

1. PowerPoint Lesson: 110 Slides

→ The lesson is scaffolded; therefore, it builds upon itself. It starts by reviewing both customary and metric units of length, weight, and capacity before teaching students how to convert between the units.

→ By the end of the lesson, students will be able to solve two step conversion word problems.

→ This PowerPoint is visually engaging - it includes a video and various website links to keep students engaged.

2. Day by Day Unit Plan Suggestions

3. Interactive Notes that follow along with the lessons

4. Measuring Around the Room {Customary Length} worksheet

5. Measuring Around the Room {Metric Length} worksheet

6. Converting Customary Length Practice Sheet

7. Converting Metric Length Practice Sheet

8. Measuring Customary and Metric Weight Lab Sheet

9. Converting Customary and Metric Weight Practice Sheet

10. Measuring Capacity Lab Sheet

11. Converting Customary and Metric Capacity Practice Sheet

12. Measuring Length and Weight Quiz

13. Video question sheet that goes along with a video clip included in the PowerPoint presentation

14. Converting Customary Length and Weight Color by Number

15. Converting Customary Capacity Color by Number

16. Converting Metric Units Color by Number

This unit correlates with Common Core Standard 5.MD.A.1

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