Liquid Measurement Lesson

Well, since all my Waldorf homeschooling friends are showing their kids liquid measurment lesson I thought I would too! Here is Robin after learning all about cups, pints, quarts, and gallons. On the blackboard is the big G illustration showing the relations. Robin made a copy for his lesson book as he went along. This was actually a pretty fun lesson, and we have been able to reinforce it daily as we started milking our goat, Mocha. She gives us about a quart per milking right now, so we ask things like "If we need a gallon for cheese, how many days do we need to save up?" Of course, right now we are drinking every drop, it is soooo good!

I've never tasted goat's milk, but have always wanted to.

I loved teaching liquid measurements to Kayla. It's something I never could quite grasp myself, and now it all makes sense and I can remember how many of "this" makes "that." :)
