The Gallon Man is a great way for students to remember equivalent measurements, but creating and adding this introductory chart to my measurement lessons was one of the best things I've done for my classes.
I usually draw it from scratch on the board each time I teach measurement, but this slideshow goes through each step for you with just a click of the mouse! There are only 3 slides, but there are 17 animated steps. It usually takes about 45 minutes to get through creating the chart and verbally checking each student for understanding.
Students who think in a linear and logical way find this chart easy to remember; more so than the usual chart with all the letters jumbled on top of each other.
Introduce volume measurements with this slideshow and follow it up with the Gallon Man art project and the FREE short quiz I have available in my store. The 3-part lesson takes about 90 minutes to do the slideshow chart and Gallon Man project and then I usually do the quiz the following day.
If you've been struggling with teaching measurement, I know this will help. I saw a huge difference in student understanding when I started using it.
There are samples of verbal checks for understanding with an answer key and notes about how to structure a complete measurement lesson at the end of the slideshow.
I hope you find this slideshow useful!
