Help students become familiar with standard units of capacity with this Capacity Practice Pack!
First, students can study the gallon brace map, which uses a Thinking Map to show that one gallon is made of up 4 quarts, each quart is made up of 2 pints, and each pint is made up of 2 cups.
Once they've had time to study, you can give them the blank gallon brace map and have them fill it in on their own. Great for assessment!
Have visual or kinesthetic learners? Create a Gallon Man! Pack includes full-page printables of 1 gallon, 4 quarts, 8 pints, and 16 cups, along with instructions on how to assemble your Gallon Man.
Give your students extra practice with capacity using the three Gallon Challenge worksheets. Each worksheet features six problems. A group of standard capacity units sits on either side of a blank box. Students must decide whether the first group is greater than, less than, or equal to the second group by converting cups into pints, pints into quarts, and so on. For example, 5 cups is greater than one pint; one pint and one cup is less than one quart. Students then write the correct symbol in the center box. Conversions are listed at the top of the page as a reminder. Answer keys included.
