In Kindergarten, we have been learning all about volume. Hands on activities are an integral part of learning about measuring the amount of space an object occupies. Included in this download are a few activities that we have used to help us learn.
** 30 Block Object Cards – printable small cards for group activities, or use the slide to project onto a screen or interactive whiteboard, for whole class object building.
>> follow the cards to build the object with connecting blocks.
>> work out the volume by counting the number of blocks.
>> find a friend to compare with. Who has the object that takes up the most or the least amount of space?
** 30 Volume + Capacity Word Cards – ideal for language and vocabulary development.
>> use to help with sorting objects. For example, set out two hoops. One with ‘takes up more space’ and the other with ‘takes up less space’. In pairs, students build objects, compare them and then sort them according to their volume.
>> an ideal addition to your Maths Focus Wall.
** 30 Clip Cards – an activity to decide the volume of real-life, everyday objects.
>> Does an apple take up more space than a row boat? Which takes up more space? A cow or a donut?
>> Suitable for a maths centre or rotation activity. Could be used individually or in pairs? Read the question and choose an answer. Clip the peg onto the box under the correct everyday picture.
** 2 Ten Block Design Record Sheets – each kiddo collects 10 connecting blocks and designs their own object. They use the record sheet to draw a diagram of each of their designs. The cool thing about this is, that there are endless possibilities of the objects they can create, and consequently, each of them occupies exactly the same amount of space.
Download includes both full colour and print-friendly black and white. All ready to print, cut, laminate and use. Yay!!
