This PowerPoint presentation includes an animated introduction to the concept of Metric Conversion and 16 task cards used to reinforce the concept. The introduction portion of the presentation uses the staircase image/method and the infamous King Henry mnemonic to welcome students to metric conversion. An animation is included in this part of the presentation (the animation is subtle, not over the top and distracting). Task cards are included after the introduction part to reinforce the concept. The Task cards include basic questions and some word problems. Common Core CCS 5.MD.1 is definitely addressed in this PowerPoint.
- If you are planning to do the Task Cards together as a class, have Slide #8 printed off and ready to distribute prior to starting them.
- If you plan on only showing the intro part and printing off the Task Cards for students to complete at their desks, there is a Student Recording Sheet they can use to fill in.
- The final slide contains the answer key.
