In this fifth-grade level math activity, students will practice length conversions with standard units. A variety of math questions will be presented to students in this interactive math game to help them gain confidence and proficiency in converting lengths and distances with standard units, including inches, feet, yards, and miles. Students may be asked to complete the length conversion table, answer a word problem, or fill in the blank with the correct answer. Upon completion of this math activity from iKnowIt.com, fifth-grade students will have a greater understanding of length conversions using standard units of measurement.
Here are a few examples of questions your students may be challenged to answer in this online math activity: "Convert 10 yards into inches"; "Drag and drop the symbol that makes the number sentence true: 11 feet is (greater than, less than, or equal) to 2 yards and 2 feet"; and "Wade is making a gift basket to bring to his sick neighbor. He has a roll of ribbon that is 3 yards long. How many inches long is the roll of ribbon?" When students need a little extra help answering a math problem, they can click on the "Hint" button. They will be shown a written or pictorial clue that will help them solve the problem. When students answer a question incorrectly, a detailed explanation page will show them the correct answer and how to obtain it so they can learn from mistakes.
Several built-in features in all math practice activities on iKnowIt.com, including this fifth-grade measurement lesson, help students make the most of their math practice time. 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 lets them know how many points they have earned so far in their math practice. A speaker icon in the upper-left corner of the practice screen indicates the read-aloud feature. Students can click the button to have the question read out loud to them in a clear voice (a great option for ESL/ELL learners and students who are auditory processors!) When children practice math skills on "I Know It," you can be confident we have designed every lesson feature with their success in mind!
