Introduction

You have probably been measuring items in your daily life longer than you know.  While pouring yourself something to drink, you probably carefully measured out enough so as not to spill.  Today you will get the opportunity to identify different measures of volume.  Once you have identified the different measures of volume you will work with your classmates to create Mr. Gallon Man, a visual that you will use to show others how the different measures of volume compare to each other.  Lastly, your whole class will create a recipe book that you can use to explain the types of things that can be measured using the different measures of volume.
