The Grade 5: Mass, Volume and Capacity activity packet is designed to provide students in Grade 5 with hands-on and engaging activities involving the study of mass, volume and capacity using standard units (i.e., mg, g, kg, t, ml, l, and cubic centimetres). This activity packet includes 6 lessons:
- 2 lessons on mass;
- 3 lessons on volume;
- 1 lesson on capacity;
This packet suggests ways of using benchmark measurements without having to have the weights or special containers. For the capacity activity, you can have students bring in containers that they can use to measure the capacity of. A quiz is also included for the end of the unit.
