Today you will measure capacity.

Capacity means the amount of space that can be filled.   



If you are at home your child/ren could investigate capacity practically.

For example - How many cups would it take to fill a saucepan? How many lunch pots would it take to fill a bucket? What about 2 buckets?    

They need to understand that the unit of measure must stay the same, for example the same cup, the same spoon etc. They understand to measure accurately, they must make each or non-standard measure full.

What could I use?

How many bowls of liquid fill the bottle?

How many cups of liquid fill the bottle?

How is this different? How is this the same?

Do your flashback first.
