Solve word problems involving metric system capacity concepts such as: adding and subtracting liters and milliliters, ordering and comparing mixed units (liters and milliliters), and converting units! Students also must communicate their thinking and steps through both oral and written language which easily lends itself to the Common Core Standards!

This packet includes Depth and Complexity frames, organizers, and even task cards for further practice with Metric System capacity concepts. Students will also have the opportunity to work together collaboratively, or work independently, as the choice is solely up to the teacher.

Think the problem is too difficult or too easy? Not a problem! Various fill-in-the-blank organizers and frames are also included in this packet. This allows the teacher to be able to change the numerical amounts as well as the names of the people in the word problem! It's always engaging to change the names to those of your very of students!

Can Anyone Use Depth and Complexity Frames?

Yes!! Although these lessons are designed for GATE students, I still use them with my "Non GATE" learners, and they really enjoy it. Use it as an opening to a lesson on place value to see what your kiddos already know, as part of an assessment, as a lesson, or you can even use this packet as part of a math center. Detailed instructions are included as well as answer keys.

Included in this packet:

+2 Depth and Complexity Frames either with or without cooperative learning structures embedded (the 2 organizers have the same word problem and prompts) **An additional frame with one different prompt has also been included. This prompt includes the math Depth and Complexity ‘Strategies’ icon.
