Capacity investigation

Year 1 have been investigating capacity in maths. Our challenge was to investigate whether the tallest container had the largest capacity. We used a range of containers, rice, spoons and funnels to assist with our investigation! We also used key vocabulary cards to help when describing the amount in a container. We all thought that the tallest container would hold the most, but we discovered that the tallest container held 250 (ml) and a jug held 1000(ml)! We worked out that the jug holds 4 of the tall containers worth of rice!
