To help my students get capacity straightened out for US Customary capacity measurement, I made these “Big G” cards. One side of the card has the Big G for remembering how many cups, pints, quarts in a gallon in a visual way. The reverse of the card has conversions for each unit of measure along with the number of ounces in each.
Measurement concepts are often difficult for students because there is so much to remember! Capacity in particular presents many challenges because of the amount of information kids need to know in both metric and US customary measurement.
