Capacity Capers!

We have been learning about Capacity in Maths.  The P3s are finding out about litres and half litres while the P2s are comparing different containers.  We worked together today to sort this huge selection of containers from smallest to biggest.  First we had to estimate which contained the most and we placed them in the order we thought was correct.  Then we had to measure them with water to see if we were correct.  We were quite surprised by some of the results.

Here is the final order after testing (with the largest capacity starting at the top right and moving round in a clockwise direction).Rainbow & capacity 004
