I had never heard of Gallon Man before my teaching partner introduced him. He is excellent for teaching equivalencies and conversions. Draw a square for the body. This square represents one gallon. Next, draw four rectangles for arms and legs. These rectangles represent quarts. Ankles and wrists are made from squares that are divided into two rectangles each representing pints. Lastly, fingers and toes are drawn with another square divided into four parts each that show cups. You can look at half his body for half-gallons too!
