Comparing Capacities

We have been really busy this week comparing capacities in school.  The children know that:

1 litre = 1000ml and 1/2 litre =500ml.

Take a look below at some of the practical activities that the children took part in, including:

- finding out how many 1/2 litre bottles it takes to fill a 1 litre bottle or a 2 litre bottle;

- showing 1/2 litre, 1 litre and 2 litres on a measuring jug;

- choosing 3 containers and ordering them according to the measurement that was written on the container.

Take a look at some of the problems that are attached that they had to solve, ask them to solve them with you.  If they find them tricky, talk through how to go about solving them.
