Measuring Capacity

I am learning to test my capacity order from yesterday with water.

I know I can do it when I can measure objects correctly using water.

Using the objects from yesterday, you will now test if your prediction is correct.

Independent Task

Today you are going to test if your prediction from yesterday was correct. 

Head outside or use the kitchen sink to test with water, the order you lined up yesterday.  

Be sure to use the same cup for each object to keep your results consistent.  

Once you discover how many cups of water the object can hold, write the result beside your guess from yesterday.

Were you correct? Were two very close in capacity? 


Find another object that would hold the exact same amount of water as 1 of the items you have chosen.
