The main purpose of the unit is to build a good understanding of the measurement units, not just memorization of the conversions. This unit is very hands on and discussion is an integral part. It is not just a "worksheet" unit! Your students will love learning math and will be so engaged!
There are 6 lessons:
Lesson 1: Measuring Capacity
Lesson 2: Introducing Customary Length
Lesson 3: Introducing Metric Length
Lesson 4: Measuring Metric Mass
Lesson 5: Measuring Customary Weight
Lesson 6: Measuring Temperature
Each lesson contains:
*Teacher instructions and materials list
*A set of vocabulary word cards
*Class work activity or recording sheet
*A sheet that can be used for homework
*Unit Benchmark Recording Sheets
There is also a Bingo Review Game and 15 question Assessment with answer key.

I teach third grade, so the majority of the items have created are geared toward third grade curriculum and standards. Since all states are different (even with Common Core!) my second grade and upper elementary friends can probably use a lot of the products too!
