This is a fun easy song and dance that my students and I created to help students remember conversions.They touch each of their body parts and relate it back to how to make it equal to a gallon.
The students start by touching their belly and say gallon.They then touch their humerus bones on each arm and their femur bones on each leg to relate that these 4 bones are like 4 quarts and are equal to one gallon. They next touch their ulna and radius on each lower arm and their tibia and fibula on each leg to show that when you add all of those bones by twos they are like eight pints which equal one gallon. Next, they count each of their fingers (phalanges) and point to their toes to show that 16 cups equals one gallon. They then do the "Gallon Dance" and free-style dance as a conclusion.
