I used the smartboard lesson Gallon Man, to go with the math lesson I taught on volume.
I had students participate in half of the smartboard lesson Gallon Man. I used this as an introduction. Next, I had students create Gallon Man out of construction paper. I followed the lesson up with the remainder of the smartboard lesson as a kind of review. To see the smartboard lesson, go to this website. https://sites.google.com/a/adams14schools.org/room-21/shared-lessons
