Here are two worksheets I constructed to compliment the measurement and data segment of the fourth/fifth grade common core math curriculum.
This can be used to help extend and enrich student understanding of unit conversions. Students are taught and encouraged to use this worksheet to explain and demonstrate the following:
-How to use a conversion chart to record unit conversions, one for larger to smaller units and the other for smaller to larger units.
-How larger to smaller unit conversions inherently require use of multiplication strategies.
-How smaller to larger unit conversions inherently require use of division strategies.
-How to construct a division/multiplication equation to represent unit conversions.
This may serve as a unique yet simply constructed challenge to fourth/fifth graders, since it helps to introduce the concept of equations while providing practice aligned with measurement and data standards. This may even reinforce these fundamental concepts for older students.
Answer keys are included.
