This is an in-class team competition activity which requires students to convert from one customary unit measure to another (yards to feet, feet to inches, etc.). This activity would best be used after students have been introduced to what customary unit measure is and have had some whole class practice with converting.
Students will take the statistics from the current year's Super Bowl game, fill in charts that are provided with this information and convert unit measurement. The learning targets for this activity are practice with conversion and accuracy in multiplication and addition. There are follow up questions regarding the numbers that students have interacted with as well as a Trivia Challenge which requires some research on the internet about the history of the Super Bowl.
As an enrichment opportunity, students who excel at the original conversions of customary units may focus on a final column within the charts of metric measurement. These students may also work towards completing the Trivia Challenge at the end of the activity.
