This activity is aligned with the Common Core standard 5.MD.1.
(Focus - converting metric lengths)
This activity can be used as a center, in cooperative groups or as an independent activity for those who finish early or need more practice.
There are two sets of penguin cards. One set is labeled by letter and the other by number. Students match a penguin from the first set of cards with the penguin with the equivalent measurement in the other set. Cards can be laid face up (for matching game) or face down (for memory game).
Students record their answers on the record sheet. An answer key is provided so students can check their own work.
* Recommendation – print out the two sets of cards on two different colors of cardstock. This way the students will know that to form a match they need to have two different color cards. Laminate for durability
