This 3-D animated movie will have you singing along as you memorize the meanings of fluid ounces, cups, pints, quarts, and gallons. It even gives kids a challenging lunchtime experiment to try with their milk cartons to discover first-hand the amount of fluid in a fluid ounce.
As if it wasn't cool enough that this original song and animation will lay a solid foundational base for concerting capacities, it has the added bonus of being catchy and memorable. We know you'll agree!

Capacity Song Lyrics:
One gallon split into fourths is four quarts.
Take that and divide by two and you got a pint.
Split that pint up into halves and make a cup,
and that cup will fit eight fluid ounces inside of it.
One gallon is four quarts (or eight pints, or sixteen cups)!
one quart is two pints (or four cups, or thirty-two fl ounces)!
One pint is two cups (or sixteen fl ounces)
One cup is eight fluid ounces
A gallon of milk split in fourths makes four quarts.
Split a quart of milk in half; then a pint is what you’ll have,
Which can make two cups you see often
When you drink your school milk carton.
If you can drink the milk in eight sips,
Each is about an ounce going through your lips
Volume is a word that’s familiar,
And capacity and volume are similar;
And though it’s easy to assume,
Capacity’s not exactly volume.
Capacity’s how much something can hold;
The amount is always the same.
Volume’s the measure of what’s inside,
And that amount can change.
