    I'm teaching about measurements in a 4th grade class. Any ideas? I'd especially be interested in any activities or games that your students enjoy.

    The Gallon Man--students create one.

    Bring in a quart and a gallon and have the students fill the gallon using the quart.

    Gallon man is great and we also make his trusty sidekick, Yard Monster.

    I've also seen the Royal Land of Gallon which gets at the same concepts.

    Anyone else have a link to yard monster?
