    I tired various things but the children could not remember them. I got this from another teacher. Draw a giant "G" on the board. Then inside the giant "G" put 4 "Q's". Then inside each "Q" put 2 "P's", then inside each "P" put 2 "C's", and then inside the "C's" put the number "8". The children really can remember this. Explain that 4 quarts = 1 gallon, 2 pints= 1 quart, 2 cups = 1 pint and 8 fluid oz= 1 cup. If the children can see it they can work it. After practice in the classroom, they begin to calculate in their heads.
