Have you heard the news? King Henry died by drinking chocolate milk! Like, please excuse my dear Aunt Sally, this mnemonic device is handy to have in the math classroom. This activity sets your students up for success with converting measurements within the metric system. Designed to help meet the fifth-grade math common core (CC.5.MD.1), this activity comes with 24 task cards (that can be cut apart for a center/mix-freeze-pair whole group, or kept as one piece for an assessment or worksheet). There is an answer key provided as well as a student answer recording sheet. Also included are sets of cards that can be cut apart -- great for pasting into math journals or notebooks. The cards include the mnemonic device and what each letter stands for, and a copy of the metric chart with abbreviations) -- great references for students as they journey into the world of metrics.
Additionally, this activity includes an anchor chart with guided practice, an exit ticket and an error analysis activity.
