One buyer said, “Converting isn’t really all that fun and this made converting fun! Some of us (me) learned about goal lines and end zones!!”

Full of engaging, entertaining Super Bowl and NFL trivia, “TEK 5.7 and CCSS 5.MD.A.1: Measurement Conversions Super Bowl” includes ideas for differentiation, a lesson song and “dance,” teaching strategies, 2 versions of 24 task cards (multiple choice and open-ended), 2 answer keys, a football field diagram, and a Roman Numeral chart.  (Gotta know what all those X’s and I’s mean, right?!)

TEK 5.7 and CCSS 5.MD.A.1 expect children to apply mathematical process standards to select appropriate units, strategies, and tools to solve problems involving measurement. The student learns to solve problems by calculating conversions within a measurement system–customary or metric. Though this product is written specifically to fifth grade, it is suitable for advanced fourth grade mathematicians as well.
