This is an ANIMATED PowerPoint that will help students learn measurement skills while using graduated cylinders.
Using graduated cylinders is fun! Pass along this fun skill to your students through this PowerPoint tutorial. Kids love the animations that are on most pages: the graduation points move up the cylinders, arrows point out the meniscus and numbers in equations, answers swirl, and more! Skills are built through animation and repetition. If one of my students needed more help, they loved reviewing this PowerPoint on their own.
Please view the PREVIEW for a sample of this PowerPoint.
• Determine scale
• Calculate increments
• Read volumes on cylinders of various scales
5 : 0.25 mL
10 : 0.2 mL
25 : 0.5 mL
50 : 1.0 mL
100 : 2.0 mL
250 : 5.0 mL
500 : 10 mL
1000 : 20 mL
• Estimating volume
• Practice slides
You may also be interested in my Graduated Cylinder Task Cards. They offer many opportunities for students to practice reading graduated cylinders. The answer sheets allow you to monitor their success and assign more, if necessary.

Measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses of objects using standard units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), and liters (l).1 Add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve one-step word problems involving masses or volumes that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as a beaker with a measurement scale) to represent the problem.
Objective: Perform measurements using appropriate scientific tools (e.g., balances, microscopes, graduated cylinders).
