Capacity: Measurements of Liquids Second Grade Math
Capacity Capacity is a measurement of liquid a certain container will hold. The gallon, half gallon, quart, pint, and cup are all capacity amounts we will learn. We will also discuss the liter.
Capacity: The Gallon What do you think of when I say gallon? You probably think of the gallon of milk sitting in your refrigerator right now.
Capacity: The Gallon Or you might think of that gallon of paint you used to paint your room.
Capacity: The Half-Gallon If you dont drink a lot of milk you might not have a gallon of milk in your refrigerator, you might have a half- gallon (which is half of a gallon)
Capacity: The Quart You may also find milk in a quart container, which is smaller than both the gallon and half-gallon. You can also get paint in a quart.
Capacity: The Pint Guess what? Milk can also come in a pint. The kind of milk or juice you get in the cafeteria is a half-pint.
Capacity: The Cup A cup of milk is 8 oz. of the cows best!!! Dont you wish you had a cup right now with a chocolate chip cookie to dunk in it? Yummy!!!
Capacity: The Liter This is a liter bottle. Many times you will see that water is sold in liter bottles at the grocery store. A liter is a little larger than a quart.
Capacity: The Liter The liter may not be familiar to you, but I bet you recognize the 2-liter of soft drink on the shelf at the grocery store. Most of you probably even have a 2-liter of your favorite soft drink at home right now.
Relating Capacity Amounts Now that you know what the capacity amounts are, lets look at how many of one container it takes to equal another container. 1 gallon = 2 half-gallons 1 gallon = 4 quarts 1 gallon = 8 pints 1 gallon = 16 cups
