Experimenting with Volume!

I challenged students to experiment with measuring volume over the weekend. Here are the directions.

Find a container.
Measure its capacity using the following units: cups, quarts, pints or gallons
Depending on the size of the container, if a different unit of measurement is necessary, please try it out! This will create great conversation on Monday.

When the capacity is determined, the students are to draw/label, take a photo, create a video, or bring in (if small) the container to share their findings. If a student creates a video it can be shared with me using email or the child can bring in a device with the video.

Here is a visual to help your child as they choose a container and a unit of measurement for the experiment.
