Use this set of customary conversion posters when learning about units of length, weight, and capacity.

Use a Customary Conversion Chart From Our Poster Pack!

Are your students struggling to remember the different types of customary units and how to convert them? This can be tricky, especially since there are so many different numbers to remember! Even though we use the customary system in our day-to-day lives, many of us often find ourselves asking questions such as, “How many pints are in a gallon?” or “How many yards are in a mile?” If your students need something to help them remember the different customary conversions, these posters can make a great addition to your measurement conversion unit.    

With this poster pack, students will have a visual representation showing the different types of customary units and how to convert within them. The poster pack includes one poster for:  

  • Customary Units of Length
  • Customary Units of Weight
  • Customary Units of Capacity
  • Standard Units of Time

How to Make the Most of Your Customary Units of Measurement Poster Pack

  1. Print the poster and display it in your classroom for students to reference when doing independent work.
  2. Print the poster on letter-size paper, slip it into a clear sleeve, and use it in your guided groups as a reminder.
  3. Print the poster on letter-size paper, slide it into a clear sleeve, and hang it on a ring as a reference tool for a learning center. 

We’ve also come up with bonus ways to turn posters into interactive tools that really make your lessons stick! 

📝 Create a fill-in-the-blank worksheet by removing selections of text.  

📂 Place copies in students’ homework folders for reference. 

💻 Provide posters as digital resources for virtual students. 

🧠 Test students’ memories by showing them the poster, then hiding it and having them tell you what they remember.

✅ Incorporate posters into your lesson wrap-up: students write on a sticky note what they learned from the lesson and place it on the poster.
