Can any offer some fun lessons for measurement conversions in the third grade?
For learning about the relationship between cups, pints, quarts and gallons, you can bring in some empty cartons of each size and have students makes guesses about how many pints in a quart or quarts in a gallon, etc. Then in small groups the students can use dried beans to transfer from smaller to larger containers and see how many containers full of beans fit into a larger one. Not sure if this is the type of conversion you were looking for - if not feel free to ask for other ideas!
