Meausuring Capacity

Yesterday in Maths, we started learning about CAPACITY. When you measure the capacity of a container, you are measuring how much it holds.

We took a lot of different containers to the sandpit and measured their capacity. After we explored on our own, we did an experiment to find out which of two containers held less. First we estimated, then we tested it by filling one and transferring the sand into the other.

We had lots of fun doing this activity, and we’re going back today to learn some more. Here are some photos of our activity.

Do you know how to measure the capacity of containers?

How would you compare the capacity of different containers?

What clues would you look for to make your estimates about whether a container would hold more or less than another?
