    Volume and Capacity

    Over the last few weeks we have been learning about volume and capacity. Volume is the amount of space that an object occupies, or that is enclosed within a container. 

    Today, while we flooded the classroom, we put our learning into practise. 

    “Today was fun because we got to pour water into measuring cylinders and measure the capacity of different household objects like cups and bowls.” Annie

    “I enjoyed estimating the capacity of each container.  I know what a litre looks like.” Mia

    “There are lots of ways to measure. I have learned that you can measure volume in millilitres and litres, length in centimetres, metres and kilometres and mass in grams and kilograms.” Ava and Olivia

    “I know litres and millilitres and I can add two volumes up to get a total amount.” Olly

    “I have learned that 1000ml = 1l, 1000g = 1kg and 1000m = 1km.” Jasmine
