In this monkey themed PowerPoint game, the students will practice solving problems using measurement. First, there is a brief overview to remind the students about basic measurement conversion (12 inches in a foot, 3 feet in a yard, 100 centimeters in a meter). Then, the students will solve twenty-three measurement word problems. None of these problems require regrouping. The students are encouraged to use their strategies as well as scrap paper or a dry erase board to show their work. After the students have been given time to try the problems, the answer is revealed in the next slide for instant feedback.
This activity can be used as an independent center, team game, or whole group with the students solving the problems on their own and then checking them together as a class.
