Today, we will be learning about volume and capacity. (That means measurements of liquids)

We measure liquids by using containers with a scale (that means numbers on the side which show us how much is the container). Often these are found in kitchens to help when we are cooking. This container has 20ml in it because the liquid comes up to the 20.

In the next example, there are 65ml, because the middle little lines on the scale means 5 millilitres more than the previous multiple of 10 (the really tiny lines each show 1ml.)

BRONZE

What are the volumes of liquid here (every scale is in ml)

SILVER

GOLD

BRONZE

I. 50 ml

2. 35 ml

3. 85ml

Silver

The volume of the blue liquid is 400 ml

The capacity of the blue liquid is 1 Litre

The volume of the green liquid is 750

The capacity of the green liquid is 1 litre

The volume of the yellow liquid is 500

The capacity of the yellow liquid is 1 litre

Annie- B

Amir -A

Eva -C

BRONZE.

50 ml .

35 ml.

85 ml.

Bronze:

1. 50ml

2. 35ml

3. 85ml

Silver:

1. The blue liquid’s volume is 400ml and the capacity is 1 litre.

2. The green liquid’s volume is 750ml and the capacity is 1 litre.

3. The orange liquid’s volume is 450ml and the capacity is 1 litre.

Gold:

Annie has container B, Amir has container A and Eva has container C.

Silver

1) The volume of the liquid is 400ml

The capacity of the container is 1litre

2) The volume of the liquid is 750ml

The capacity of the container is litre

3) The volume of the liquid is 450ml

The capacity of the container is 1litre

Double check the third one. It’s half way between 400ml and 600ml

bronze

50 ml

30.5 ml

80.5 ml

The volume is the amount of space inside a solid figure and that capacity is how much liquid a 3dimension figure that can hold. The difference between the two is the weight we represent the measurements.

Nice one. Can you try bronze?

I will send a email .

Super stuff. How do you know you made progress today?

Double check the volume in Q3 of silver. Good job on everything else.

Good stuff remember units of measure.

Amir’s container is, container A.

Annie’s container is, container B.

Eva’s container is container C.

Nice one! Can you have a go at silver too.
