We have created this length, capacity & time game to give students practice with customary units of measurement through an I have, Who has game.
This simple set of 30 “I have…Who has…?” cards focuses on measurement conversions for customary length, capacity and time and is meant to be a fun and engaging way to practice.
This particular game is geared for third graders, but might also be used in a second grade classroom perhaps if visuals were in clear sight so that students could use them as reference. (We would perhaps suggest a yardstick, capacity measurement tools and an analog clock, but even representations of length comparisons – such as a gallon man for capacity – would be helpful for students.) Or, have students prepare for the game by making their own anchor charts. This could be an engaging math center activity!
For those unfamiliar with “I have…Who has…?” activities, pass out all the cards. If you don’t have 30 students, consider giving some students two cards or you could keep the extra cards and participate where needed in the activity. Once the cards are passed out, the student with the word “Start” reads their card first by asking the question. Whoever is holding the card with the answer to that question, reads their own card…which includes another question. Play continues until the last student, whose card says “Finish” has read their answer.
We have provided this length, capacity & time game in color and in black & white. You could print the color on card stock and laminate for durability and continued use or simply print the black & white set on copy paper and throw them away as they become worn out.
