We began the day working on our holiday scrapbooks for our summative projects.
Next we had French and then Gym.
After first recess and lunch we explored capacity. We have been measuring time and temperature and we discussed other ways that we can measure. Today our focus was measuring how much a container can hold which we learned is measuring capacity. We were introduced to the term Litre written as L and that the litre is a unit used to measure how much a container holds. We looked at five different containers and we made predictions about which one would hold the most and which one would hold the least. We then made predictions about which one would hold about 1 litre. We found out that the detergent container held 1 Litre.
Once we had this benchmark we made predictions about each container about whether or not they could hold about a litre, more than a litre or less than a litre. We found out that the milk container and the juice jug held more, the plastic container held 1 litre (even though it was shorter than the detergent container but it was much wider!) and the plastic cup held less than a litre. We then learned that 4 glasses go into 1 litre and we used this knowledge to complete measuring capacity activities.
So if 1L = 4 glasses
2L= 8 glasses
3L = 12
4L = 16
5L = 20
Our knowledge of multiplication became very handy today!!!! We were able to determine how many glasses would go into 20 litres= 80 glasses!!
After second recess and lunch we continued working on our summative projects.
