Capacity – Grade One Maths

What holds more?

What holds more? This has been the problem Grade 1’s have been trying to solve this week!

As part of learning different types of measurements, the students have been busy investigating many ways to solve capacity problems. Firstly, ordering what objects holds the least to most of water.  We have made strong estimation looking how much an object holds and then hands on measuring. Many materials such as rice, sand and water has allowed us to prove our results.

So parents, if you need some help in the kitchen with cooking the Grade Ones have become expert measurers!

See some of their investigating in the below pictures:
