Gallon Robot to the Rescue is much more than a set of Gallon Man or Gallon Girl patterns! It's a comprehensive collection of teaching strategies and printables to help your students learn to convert between the customary units of capacity. The activities also help to reinforce basic fraction concepts.
After creating a Gallon Robot from paper patterns, students learn the fractional relationships between cups, pints, quarts, and gallons. This product also includes cooperative learning activities, center games, and teacher demonstration pages. Complete directions, printables, and answer keys are provided. Please preview before purchasing; you may preview the entire book online by downloading the preview version.
The lessons and activities are aligned with Common Core Standards 4.MD.A.1 and 5.MD.A.2, but the student pages do not include any references to the CCSS.
