This packet is all about the difference between volume and capacity and uses a hands on approach to help students explore this concept. Students will construct their own boxes and then investigate the volume of each container. There is no need to source a range of different containers and boxes.
Included in this packet is

⭐ 3 containers for students to make
⭐ Instructions on finding volume and capacity for these containers
⭐ Recording sheets
⭐ Posters to display (metric and imperial versions)
⭐ A self correcting matching game for millilitres and litres for extension or consolidation
⭐ 2 matching activities for volume
⭐ A matching activity for capacity
⭐ A cut and paste interactive Flip Flap activity for capacity

This is a great activity for Maths centers.
