Are you teaching measurement right now? Then this is the place for you! My 3rd graders just had a chapter on customary measurement and needed to know some basic conversions. We did a lot of hands-on activities so they had a basic understanding of measurement units. Then, we did a lot of review games and activities. I’m sharing some ideas for teaching measurement and things that I created on this post. I’m just going to write a few things right now to get the post started (it’s Sunday night and way past bedtime!) and add to it later.
These Numberock videos were a hit in my classroom and helped the students remember some of the conversions. I’ve also included one that is a lesson on measuring to the 1/4 and 1/2 inch. This is a video that is made for parents who are teaching measurement, but i is also good to show to students. This teacher shows a great way of shading the fraction of an inch to show that it is part of the whole inch.
I created a set of posters that show some of the basic measurement conversions. Since it is winter now, I decided to use this adorable winter woodland clipart that I found from Kenna Sato Designs. I had the clipart on a game that my students were using and they wanted to borrow the cards afterwards to practice drawing the animals! So cute! You can get this set of posters free in my Teacher Resource Library. The library has other freebies and exclusive contents just for subscribers.
