Here is a song our class uses to remember the units of US capacity. We hope it’s useful to you, and we would appreciate it if you leave us a comment if you use it in your class!
If You Need a Gallon Man
To the Tune of “If You’re Happy and You Know It”
If you need a Gallon Man, you need 4 quarts
If you need a Gallon Man, you need 8 pints
If you need a Gallon Man, 16 cups can be your plan
If you need a Gallon Man, you need 4 quarts.
Because a gallon, don’t you know, equals 4 quarts
And a quart, don’t you know, equals 2 pints
And if a pint is where you stand, then 2 cups can be your plan
â€˜Cause if you need a Gallon Man, you need 4 quarts

Just wanted to let you know that I used this as a lesson in my student teaching. The kids loved it, they were hesitant at first but then as predicted I heard many of them singing it on their way out the door. Thanks for making the song familiar and simple to remember!
lol that was great it was a great tool for my kids when they need help with thier homework
I absolutely love it. I used this along with the drawing of gallon man and it really stuck. Thanks!
