Gallon man

Gallon man is a visual aid that helps students learn visually the relationships or conversion factors between gallons, quarts, pints, and cups.

  • His main body is 1 gallon.
  • He has four arms/legs, representing 4 quarts in one gallon.
  • Each of his arms ends in two pints (hands/feet), representing that 2 pints = 1 quart.
  • Each of his hands and legs ends in four cups (fingers/toes), representing that 4 cups = 2 pints.

Options include showing or hiding the text for gallons, quarts, pints, and cups. You can show the same relationships also as a list of visual equations or as a poster that uses the letters G, Q, P and C to show the same conversion factors.
