Meet Mr. Gallon, the Captain of Capacity!

Mrs. Ranney's class has been learning about capacity using customary units.

Gallon is a customary unit for capacity.

Our friend, Corey, from Mrs. Yollis' class brought Mr. Gallon to school today.
Mr. Gallon was very helpful with conversions!

Meet Mr. Gallon!

Mr. Gallon says, "There are four blue quarts in a gallon!"

Mr. Gallon says, "There are eight purple pints in a gallon!"

Mr. Gallon says, "There are 16 green cups in a gallon!"

What do you think of Mr. Gallon?

Did he help you learn about capacity?

What have you found at home that uses these customary units?
