Classroom Measurement Set
Great interactive learning
My son loves math but was having a hard time understanding measurements, especially liquid as he could not visualize what I, or his dad, were trying to explain. This set has helped him see what we mean by quarts, pints, gallons, etc. He now understands that 4 cups equal a quart, because he has done it with his own hands and seen it with his own eyes.
He has said that this makes learning fun and I can't ask for more than that as a homeschooling mom.
The only negative thing I have noticed is that occasionally lines do not match up. This can be seen on the gallon/2 liters bottle. The line for the gallon is in the correct place, but the other side of the container has the line for 2 liters up higher. This was a bit confusing for a new learner, but I am hoping that he understood my explaination and does not let it confuse him.

Just what I wanted
I was going to make my own set of measurement tools out of jugs but this was such a good deal that I bought it. I am very happy I did. I really like how everything fits inside each other for storage. I recommend this product.
