Here is a fun, interactive math activity that helps students become familiar with length conversions using standard units. In this online math game, students may practice converting lengths between yards and feet, feet and inches, and more. After completing this measurement math lesson, students will have gained confidence and proficiency in basic length conversions with standard units.
Your students will be engaged and challenged by a variety of math questions in this fourth-grade math activity. Students may be asked to convert 360 inches to feet. They may be given a word problem, such as: "The bleachers at North Point High School's football field are 840 inches long. How many feet long are the bleachers?" Questions in this interactive measurement activity are presented in fill-in-the-blank format, complete-the-table format, and drag-and-drop format.
Several lesson features are available to your students as they practice length conversions in this online math lesson. If students get stuck on a math problem, they can click on the "Hint" button to be shown a relevant written or pictorial clue. When students answer a question incorrectly, a detailed explanation page will show them how to obtain the correct unit conversion. In this way, students move through the lesson having learned from their mistakes. In addition, a progress-tracker in the upper-right corner of the practice screen shows students how many questions they have answered out of the total number of questions in the lesson. A score-tracker beneath the progress-tracker lets students know how many points they have earned. Plus, the speaker icon in the upper-left corner of the practice screen indicates the read-aloud feature - students can click the button and the question will be read out loud to them in a clear voice. (This is a handy option for ESL/ELL students and students who excel at auditory learning!)
