Are you looking for ways to help your students practice using measuring cups to improve their cooking skills? This activity provides students with an opportunity to use real world math skills to practice both identifying and using measuring cups in a functional manner. Being able to use measuring cups correctly is an important life skill that many special education students struggle with. Help them practice reaching mastery of this topic with this interactive activity.
Two separate levels are included with your purchase. The first level has students simply identify the correct measuring cup or spoon from a visual list. The second level asks students to “build” different measurement amounts on the screen. This activity is specifically designed for special education students who are working on real world math skills. Students will work through each prompt and practice both identifying and functionally using measuring cups and spoons to simulate cooking and measuring items online.
This activity is specifically formatted to be used with Google Drive and is compatible with Google Classroom. Google Drive is an amazing resource that many educators are now using as an interface to support 1:1 digital instruction in the classroom. I pair it up with Google Classroom (a free website) that allows me to digitally send each student in my class a copy of the worksheets that they later submit to me for grading. With this lesson, students are able to drag and drop a variety of measuring cups into their correct locations. It is an amazing paper-free process and the kids LOVE working on these worksheets on the computer.
