So my kiddos got to test drive my Fill it up! Volume packet.
Here is a sneak peek at it in action!
Prior to this activity we discussed what the difference between volume and capacity was and how we would need to fill our containers to find the volume.
First the students had to cut out 3 different sized box templates and make them into an open box
Voila! The boxes are labelled A, B and C
They then had to fill the boxes with MAB blocks that are conveniently a 1cm cube and then record on the recording sheet.
There were some very interesting ways that the students tried to fill their containers making sure they had no spaces
This little treasure worked out that if she did one layer on the bottom and then counted how many high it would be, you could work out what the volume is! Yay for hands on activities!
Tomorrow we are going to explore how we can find out how many times one container can fit into one of the other containers as we ran out of time for that today.
I am hoping to have this packet finished in the next week and now that my kiddos have helped me work out a few kinks, it will be good to go!Remember you can still snag a bargain at the TpT site wide sale!
