Red Kites Maths – Measuring Capacity.

Posted on by Miss Ingram

Today in Red Kites, we have learned all about measuring the capacity of objects. To begin with, we discussed the term capacity and the units of measurements we use when determining this (ml and l) and, the conversions between these. Then, we had a look at different measuring jugs and cylinders that allow us to measure capacity. We talked closely about recognising the different scales on each of these. With our buddies, we then used these to measure the capacity of different objects. Finally, we got together to share our measurements and have a discussion around comparing the capacity of the different objects.
