2 activities attached.
- Students must look for a variety of containers at home that contain liquid. Can they find the number on the label that tells them how many liters (l) or milliliters (ml) they hold?
- They must then find three containers to bring in to school. One should be about 1 liter, one should be about half a liter (or about 500 milliliters) and the last should be much smaller than half a liter.
- For this activity, present the children with a variety of empty containers (labelled A through F). You could use ‘some’ of the containers the children brought in for homework.
- Students must then estimate the volume of each container.
- They must then record the actual measurements and finally calculate the difference between their estimate and actual measurement
