  1. Select a recipe book.  Read to identify at least 6 different recipes that include liquid ingredients.  Prepare a table with columns labeled cups, pints, quarts and gallons.  Record the liquid measures for each recipe in the correct column.  Convert each liquid measure to each other unit of measure to complete the table.  Example: If the recipe calls for 1 Qt of milk, the chart would show:
