Unit Measurements Visual Chart
This unit measurements visual chart is a great way to help students visualize unit measurements better, and be able to memorize how many cups, pints & quarts are in a gallon. The picture pretty much represents itself- The largest letter G represents Gallon, which is the biggest measurement- then we see 4 Q’s for ‘quarts’ and in each quart there is two P’s for ‘pints’ meaning there is 2 pints in a quart, and total 8 pints in a gallon. In each pint we see 2 C’s representing ‘cups’ and also that there is 16 cups in a gallon.
This is a great visual tool for students to use when they are trying to see the big picture of measurements. I used something very similar in my 3rd grade classroom to teach my class, liquid conversions. When it came to the test, I loved it because they all remember this. They either were able to recall it visually in their memory and use it that way or they recreated their own! Another benefit of the chart is that it helps the students to see how big a gallon is compared to a cup, how big a quart is compared to a cup, and so on!
