VILLA RICA, Ga. -- When all three of your children are the same age, you want to make sure they're each treated as individuals.
Just ask Dan and Stephanie Schulze.
Their 9-year-old triplets (one girl and two boys) are in Griffin Nichols' four grade class at New Georgia Elementary.
"They are all very different," said Dan. "All three have very different learning styles and strengths/weaknesses.
Proof came recently during a class period with Nichols teaching volume and capacity. After working with the students on problems on the board and worksheets, he had them create "Gallon Guy" and "Gallon Girl" out of construction paper.
"Like it's Superman and he has his crest in the center," said Nichols.
The arms and legs on their individual "superheroes" represented quarts, while the hands and feet were pints and the fingers and toes represented cups.
