Description

 A collection of worksheets to support hands-on investigation of capacity. Includes 3 investigate tasks:1. Which cup holds the most liquid?Students will need 2 cups of different sizes. The idea is to have a short, wide cup which holds more liquid than the tall cup, as this challenges their perception of capacity. The students will pour water into the first cup and then transfer it into the second cup. What do they notice? Does the water overflow? Do they need more water to top the cup up?2. Measuring with Different MaterialsStudents practise measuring capacity of different cups using informal units of measurement such as pom poms, beans, buttons, unifix cubes etc. Includes space to draw the cups, record the materials they are using and a reflection question.3. How Many Cups?Students estimate measuring three different containers using cups of water. A great activity to support student understanding of accurate measurement.
