Capacity vs. Weight: Card Sorts
Choosing the appropriate measure for capacity or weight is tricky, but these card sorts can help! Use them orally in small groups, or individually as a practice station in Math Daily 3 or in Guided Math. Another option is to use one card at a time with the entire class. Students can answer on notebook paper and track the cards they have completed on the included recording sheet. An answer key is also included.
Cards to practice choosing the appropriate unit of measure for liquid volume (capacity) or weight. QR codes on each card make this activity self-checking. These card sorts are perfect Guided Math centers, BUILD, Daily 3 Math stations, and for partner work.
These cards will look best in color, but will also print out fine in black and white. Simply print and cut along the guidelines. Laminate and use them again and again. Alternatively, you could print black and white cards on card stock. Keep them in a baggie.
