Measuring Capacity Resource: Gallon Man and Capacity Visual

First off, I apologize for the long delay in posts. It's been a busy last month or so. We had our state No Child Left Behind testing a few weeks ago, then we had Spring Break, and finally I'm back. It was a whirlwind, but it's done, and now we can get back to business.

Currently my 5th graders are studying measuring, including measuring tools, one step conversions, and the various categories of measurement. I'll be posting unit plans for the Measurement unit soon (in New Mexico Standards and Benchmarks format, Common Core units will be coming over the summer).

For today, I wanted to share a resource that has served me well when my students are learning about capacity, and this little pdf document includes two visuals for working with US unit capacity (volume), including the relationship between gallons, quarts, pints, and cups.

The document includes this little visual:

It also includes this one:

They're both ready for printing and use in the classroom.

This document comes thanks to The Teacher Website, and is hosted there:
