Math Problem Solving: Exploring Capacity
Kids have a lot of misconceptions about capacity, and they can really only be cleared up through hands-on exploration. Sadly, I don't think they get opportunities for this like we did when we were kids. Instead of playing in a sand box or with cups and bowls in the bathtub, kids are playing with iPads and Wii's. And so many districts (mine included) are taking away sand and water tables from kindergarten, in favor of more "rigor." Because of this, kids are not building the schema necessary…

Capacity and Volume Power Point (Metric Scale)
This Capacity and Volume Power Point is designed for students to reinforce learning with relevant questions which relate to the metric scale. From questions which help students understand the equivalent of millilitres to litres. It also gets students to think about halving measurements and to understand which best unit of measure is best suited to what everyday item. (from measuring jugs, to spray bottles, to swimming pools).
