Meet Mr. & Mrs. Gallon

Mr. Gallon (or Mrs. Gallon if your Faith and refuse to do boy stuff) is a visual aid we used to help us learn and understand Customary Capacity Units. By studying Mr. & Mrs. Gallon the kids will easily remember the number of each unit that makes up one gallon.
My kids now know and will never forget how many quarts are in a gallon or how many pints make a quart etc. They have these little friends to help them remember.




Make your own Mr. or Mrs. Gallon
