    This is great. Several children have been really struggling with conversions. This may not help them fully understand it but it will give them a way of achieving success.

    Found this when looking for an alternative method to help my 1:1 student. It looks good. Looking forward to trying this out with her.

    A very interesting way of teaching this. I am sure with using this, the children can successfully carry out the task as well as practice knowing if the numbers would be bigger or smaller depending on the measurements being converted (and by how many!).
