I am learning to make a container from recycled materials that will hold exactly 10 of the same items.
I know I can do it when I can make a container from recycled materials that will hold exactly 10 of the same items.
Capacity is not just about how much water something can hold.
It can also include filling an object with other materials including money, cookies, pasta and toys, just to name a few.
Today you will be exploring this further by having a go at constructing your own container to hold the objects.
Make a container from recycled materials (examples: cardboard, Lego, play dough, plasticine, plastic or anything else that you can think of) that will comfortably hold 10 of the same items (examples: cotton wool balls, pasta or Lego blocks).
In order for it to comfortably hold the chosen items it must be full once you reach 10.
If once you have made the container there is still a lot of room left you might adjust the size of the container or choose another item that might fit 10.
