Capacity Breakthrough!

As I stated before, customary units of measure are frustrating as a teacher because:

  1. There are SO many different numbers involved
  2. We are the only country that uses it
That being said, when I find something that works for a standard I have to teach, I want to share! I have been teaching capacity for 11 years and have never seen it "click" like I did today, I have used Gallon Guy, pictures, real models, but it all takes so much memorization of the numbers. Today, I told them a story that goes along with a model I use. It was like the room was alive with fictitious light bulbs going off all over! It was one of those teaching moments teachers love, so I had to share!
