Maths Detectives…

We enjoyed taking our learning outside today when learning about volume. We used cups to measure how much water each container holds and used vocabulary such as: full, half full, almost full and empty to describe our observations. 

We found out that the lemonade and milk bottles have the greatest volume as they both hold 9 1/2 cups of water which we now know is the same as 2 litres.

The hand sanitiser bottle holds the least amount of water as it only filled half of our cup.


Can you find anything in your house that holds more liquid than a 2 litre milk bottle?
