Describe measurable attributes of objects, such as length or weight. Describe several measurable attributes of a single object.
Directly compare two objects with a measurable attribute in common, to see which object has “more of”/“less of” the attribute, and describe the difference. For example, directly compare the heights of two children and describe one child as taller/shorter.
Measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses of objects using standard units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), and liters (l).1 Add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve one-step word problems involving masses or volumes that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as a beaker with a measurement scale) to represent the problem.2
Which holds more, a cup or a pint? In this movie, you'll find out about different units of capacity, including cups, pints, quarts, and gallons. You'll learn how to measure using these units and explore volume. What comes in cups and pints? What comes in quarts and gallons? You'll find out how there are two cups in a pint, two pints in a quart, and four quarts in a gallon. But, how many cups are in a gallon? Watch the movie to find out!
In this multi-day lesson plan, which is adaptable for grades K-3, students use BrainPOP Jr. resources to explore the standard measures that are used to describe capacity. Students will order cups, pints, quarts, and gallons from smallest to largest and determine equivalent capacities. This lesson plan is aligned to Common Core State Standards. See more »
This page contains information to support educators and families in teaching K-3 students about liquid measurement including cups, pints, quarts and gallons. The information is designed to complement the BrainPOP Jr. movie Cups, Pints, Quarts, Gallons. It explains the type of content covered in the movie, provides ideas for how teachers and parents can develop related understandings, and suggests how other BrainPOP Jr. resources can be used to scaffold and extend student learning.
