Learning Gallons & Pints

Here are some cool teaching tools for helping your kids with this stage of learning measurements.

Recipe 4 Mr. Gallon
'Mr Gallon' is this wonderful teaching aid I made a long time ago and still use to help kids understand the concept of a gallon. I will explain him to you.

You can either draw him or make him out of a gallon milk container.He has two arms and two legs, each marked "quart".
Gallon is on his stomach. Two fingers (toes) on each extremity is written with "pint". In this way, the students can see that four quarts equal one gallon or 8 pints,or that 2 pints equals one quart, etc.

 

Recipe 4 Another Mr. Gallon Drawing

First draw a giant "G" in black. Then draw four "Q's" inside that shape, in red. Then draw two "P's" in green, inside the "Q". Last, draw two "C's" inside the "P's". This shows visual learners that there are four Quarts in a Gallon, two Pints in a Quart, two Cups in a Pint......four cups in a quart.....16 cups in a gallon.....8 pints in gallon, etc.
