Product Description
Can you place containers in order by volume? This one day challenge will help your students visualize and understand volume as they compare sizes of containers and their volume.

Please note: This challenge is available in money-saving bundles.

Students will examine seven different containers with volumes they cannot easily distinguish by merely looking at them. They will try to order the containers from least volume to greatest volume - using only observation. After attempting this, students complete two more activities to try ordering the containers- each time adding a new way to measure. Finally, they will participate in a discussion of the results and talk about how their perceptions of the containers and the actual volume of the containers compare.

You will need materials in addition to this lesson guide! This includes: seven different sizes and shapes of containers (common items like plastic cups, standing test tubes, round pans, etc.); rice (or similar item to use with measuring); scoops (a 3 ounce cup works); and dishpans or trays.

The lesson guide provides a materials list and then step-by-step procedures to follow to make this a successful experience. Helpful Hints gives ideas of specific things to make this easier and fun. A page of Extensions gives ideas of continuing the activity as a whole class or in your science/math centers. Also provided: lab sheet with sample answers, class data table page, constraints page, scoring rubric, and editable files! Yes, all the forms are provided in an editable format!

The package specifically contains: Cover, Teacher Background page, Materials and Preparation page, 4 pages of Step-by-Step Procedures with helpful hints, Extensions page, Lab sheet with sample answers, 2 pages of labels in two background colors, 2 Photo pages, Class Data table page, Constraints page, Scoring Rubric, and Terms of Use page. A second file contains the forms in an editable format.
