This week for maths we have been comparing the volume of different containers by pouring from one to the other. We used this comparison of containers to order from some that held the least, to the most.
In the beginning we read the story of Goldilocks and the 3 Bears. We were then given the task of finding three different containers for the bears in many different scenarios.
This was a fun way of learning about volume. The biggest learning was the fact that just because a container looks bigger it doesn't mean it will hold more for example.... some very wide bowls didn't hold as much rice bubbles as smaller taller ones....and some tall drink bottles didn't hold as much water as some shorter wider ones.
