Today, we're going to be measuring the capacity of different containers. It's a beautiful day so you're going to start by filling a large bucket or bowl up with water and taking it outside into the garden. Now find some plastic containers of different sizes, for example, cups, bowls, yoghurt pots, spoons, juice bottles etc.

Which will hold the most?

Which will hold the least?

How many small containers do you think it will take to fill up the big container?

Try it and see if you were right!

Now do the same with the other containers.

Please send your teacher some photos! We'd love to see what you're doing.
