Estimating, Ordering and Measuring Capacity

Today, in Math, the students learned how to use their eyes to estimate and order the capacity of containers, as well as how to measure and confirm the order. 

We began with four cups.


After, we used three different containers.



After completing these measurement activities, the students learned that they need to consider the height AND the width of the container in order to make an realistic estimate.
