This was set up to be a rotation station that took about 10 minutes. 5-6 students work as a team to complete the activity cooperatively. A timer is set to keep everything moving. Students gain actual experience in measuring cups, pints, quarts, and gallons.
Procedure: Print out task cards and arrange on poster board. Place in an area visible to students as they do the activity. Set up your classroom where you have other activities (perhaps construction of gallon man and/or measurement task cards) that take about the same amount of time to complete (10 to 15 minutes) or have this as a math center. Up to 5 to 6 students can be engaged in this measurement experience at a time.
Thank you for trying this activity and for feedback/rating.
