OK….this is going to seem like a REALLY weird post….but I really LOVED this idea and wanted to share it! And since that’s really what “One Good Thing By Jillee” is all about (finding cool stuff and sharing it!) that’s what I’m going to do. :-)
I saw this on Pinterest recently. It’s from a website called Beyond The Grades. I’m a little embarrassed to admit that’s where this comes from….because it’s a THIRD GRADE teacher’s website. lol. Nothing against Mrs. Rivera. Her website is amazing! I just have to laugh at the fact that this is 3rd grade stuff that I find so amazing. :-) I apparently didn’t pay too close attention in 3rd grade.
So here is the 411 on how to remember how many cups are in a gallon, etc.
There are 2 Cups in a Pint
There are 2 Pints in a Quart
There are 4 Quarts in a Gallon
Two “C’s” fit inside a “P,” two “P’s” fit inside a “Q,” and four “Q’s” fit inside a “G.” Brilliant!
It still takes a few minutes of mental visualization, but with this diagram in mind, you can easily figure out that there are four cups in a quart, 16 cups in a gallon, and so on.
I decided to make my own version of Mrs. Rivera’s chart to print and hang in my kitchen. If you click on the link below, you can print one out too!
I hope someone else finds this as helpful as I did. :-)
