In this lesson, students convert from pounds to ounces, yards to feet, and feet to inches using two-column conversion tables. Using a balance scale, they find that there are 16 ounces in 1 pound. Using this fact, they generate a two-column conversion table and use it to convert pounds to ounces. Then they use the same method to convert yards to feet and feet to inches.
