Capacity Recording Sheet
• Set out six containers of different shapes and sizes. Number the containers 1 – 6.
• Set out several 1 oz. clear plastic cups for students to use as a measurer (the number of 1 oz. cups will depend on the number of students you have in a group).
• Students will predict how many cups of rice and beans each numbered container will hold and write their “prediction” under the correct column of the chart.
• With the 1 oz. clear plastic cups, students will fill each numbered container with rice and beans to see how many cups it will hold. They will then write the “actual” number in the correct column of the chart.
