Here is a free grapic that will let you kids visualize how many pints in a gallon.
I'm a very visual person, and so are my kids, so I try to draw something out whenever I think creating a visual will help get a point across better. I find that sometimes just writing something out as a "picture" helps my children remember the information better, too, even if it's a simple concept to start with.
Last year we were studying measurements of volume in math, and my kids were having trouble remembering all the volume units and their relationships. So I drew this simple diagram, which has actually helped me remember volume relationships much better, too. It worked wonders.
You can download the black-and-white "How Many Pints in a Gallon?" graphic or the color "How Many Pints in a Gallon?" graphic for your personal use. Hopefully this free grapic will help you never to forget how many pints there are in a gallon.

Great visual, thanks so much for sharing that. btw, I love this meme! Always find so many helpful nuggets.
It's very, very useful! This is the diagram that I included in my daughter's minioffice. I think it's the BEST diagram out there! Thanks for sharing it with us all.
Thank-you! This is a terrific visual!!
This is a great tip; we're visual learners, too.
I have something for you at my blog:

Oh my goodness!!!!! You are brilliant!
My girls and I were at the grocery store last weekend trying to do a cost comparison and were racking our brains for these volume relationships. Wonderful visual … thanks for sharing.
Thank you so much for this chart, it has been helpful, even to me!

yeehaw for visual learning tools! thank you!
This is PERFECT! We need this NOW! Thanks!
Hey, this is really neat!
Fantastic visual, I am surprised this is not standard for the subject. I am grateful that you shared with us.
Great illustration! I am also a visual person, and in all of my 30 years of learning, I've never actually committed the different units of volumes and measurements to memorization. Shame on me.. lol. Now, I'm just trying to relearn the basics and your visual aid has been very helpful.

Just a note to say I copied your conversion charts for our son to have a visual in learning math.
Thank you so much for your time in posting these.

Wow! I had never made the connection between these measurments and the fibonacci sequence. Thanks for this chart.
The Martins says
My previous comment was a little premature, I guess it doesn't fall within the fibonacci sequence but will still make a great visual association.

@The Martins, 🙂 Yeah, I just read your comment and was thinking…where are the 3's? 🙂 But yes, I've found it to be a VERY helpful visual.
Nice! Easy to remember!
