Gallon Robots

This was a project requested by a 2nd grade teacher to compliment their math lesson.  I think she thought I'd follow the printed handout and have the students color the worksheet, cut out the pieces and glue them together...but little did she know, my mind doesn't comprehend "worksheet" language :)  Instead, I gave each student colored construction paper that we divided into half gallons, quarts, pints, and cups.  I didn't realize exactly how much paper we would need...and exactly how BIG these robots would be.  The kids had to take their projects to the floor because they ran out of table space.
