Here’s- a little rap on equivalence – a little bitty rap about equivalence…

We’ll start here with the little t. - right here with a little bitty t. Little t. is the tea-spoon.

How many little t’s in a big T?

You get 3 little t’s in a big T.

Yes, that’s 3 little t’s in a Tablespoon,

Always 3, only 3.

Now in weight that’s ½ ounce,

Yes, one half ounce in a Tablespoon.

And…

16 Tablespoon to a cup, drink it up…

Drink up the knowledge on equivalents, weight math measure & equivalents.

Work-in our way up on equivalents.

The question now is how?

How many, - I say, how many Tablespoons in an 8th cup?

Yes, how many?

1/8 of a cup – go-ing up.

2 yes 2 ,

You get 2 Tablespoons in an eighth cup.

Now for weight you can weigh?

You get 2 Tablespoons to an ounce.

So? 8th cup YEP - 2 tablespoons.

1 ounce is- an eighth cup.

So what’s that mean?

8 ounces in a full cup,

Yes…..

8 ounces in a full cup,

Now…..

Let’s go back to the ounce,

Let’s bounce!

8 oz. in a cup,

2 Tablespoons in an ounce.

Yes, for short- ounce is- O-Z.

Oh yes, and 8 ounces is a half pint too.

Yes, that’s 8 ounces in a half pint,

It’s a ½ pint - cup drink it up,

8 ounces as it bounces!

Up for more?

Are you sure?

How many ounces in a pint?

I say how many?

Is it 16?

Oh yes, 16- count them up.

Drink up the knowledge on equivalents, weights math measure & equivalents.

Work-in our way up on equivalents.

Now climb it from here, go bigger, go volume weight and measure.

Let’s compare, so beware-not to scare just to share.

LET’S go up from here- we got ounce with some bounce.

Gettin’ bigger with weight & measure,

Break it down with the pound.

16 ounce in the pound- now we’re down with the pound,

In weight the pound just 16 ounces equals “one- big- pound”

That’s weight/dry measure…

“Fist pound if you get it”

That’s one pound equals 16 ounces.

Measure up.

Now we’re down with the pound that’s in weight,

Yes, still a measure.

Can we go more from here?

Is there fear – am I clear?

On the volume weight measure and equivalents,

Are we learning lots about equivalents?

Drink up the knowledge on equivalents, weights math measure & equivalents,

Work-in our way up on equivalents,

Quarts now!

Yes, on to quarts,

There are 32 ounces in a quart,

Let’s - mix it up with the cup.

How many cups in a quart?

You say 4 – that’s the score- in the quart.

Yes, 4 cups to the quart,

And, 8 ounces to each cup makes.

So, add it up, 8 times 4 and that is the score – you have 32 ounces.

Yes, - that’s 32 ounces in a quart.

Okay, 32 ounces to a quart - 4 cups - please,

Now, we’re on to the gallon,

Yes we are working up the GALLON.

The Great BIG Wonderful Gallon!

How many quarts in a gallon?

Again, how many quarts?

Goes in fourths.

Yes, like the quarts,

4 quarts to the gallon.

Yes, 4 quarts to the gallon.

We have 32 oz in a full-quart

So – how many ounces in a gallon?

If you have 4 quarts in a gallon,

How many oz. in a gallon?

128 that’s straight.

Drink up the knowledge on equivalents, weights math measure & equivalents,

We worked our way up on equivalents.

Now we are done!

You built it up

So, you can break down your equivalents,

Your weights math measure and equivalents.

Use them all day while at work or play,

Oh Yes….

We broke down the equivalents,

We know the weight-measure-land of equivalents.

------------ Questions:

If there are 8oz in a cup and 12 oz in a can of pop, there are 1 and ½ cups of liquid in a can of 12 oz.

How many ounces are in an eighth cup?
