Product Description
Put on your safety googles because it's time for some experiments! Are you up for finding capacity and mass in ten different math / science experiments? Then you've come to the right place! If you're looking for ways to make more meaningful connections to math in the real world, this is the activity for you! Students will embark upon a day of science "experiments" where they have to solve 10 capacity and mass math activities that are challenges that relate directly to math in the real world.

Your third graders will find the capacity of containers in mL and L, find mass using g and kg, solve mass and capacity word problems, and read graduated cylinders with mL and L inside them.

⭐ What is This? ⭐
Help your students become scientists in your classroom! Students complete 10 capacity and mass challenges that are real-world scientist-themed math problems.

Print out all 10 science posters and all 10 aligned challenges. Distribute them around your room. Give each child a recording sheet. Explain to students that they will become scientists and will need to complete all ten challenges! They have to find all ten challenges you've left around the classroom and find the answers to each one. They use the recording sheet to mark off each challenge as they go.

There is also an additional writing activity where students scan the QR codes on each poster and find out fun facts about famous scientists!

This math activity is perfect for third graders. It aligns with 3.MD.2.
