We worked together with Room 14 to practise our learning about capacity. We had many different stations we needed to complete to get ready for a party.
|Toby working with Keagan to find out|
how many blocks the fruit weighs
We measured in blocks and grams
|Each person at the party will use 10mLs of sauce.|
How much sauce will you need?
|Isabella measuring 10mLs into|
|Henrietta working out how much|
sauce she will need for a party
|Faith measuring sand for her|
sand and water cake
|Caitlyn counting in 1/2 litres|
1/2, 1, 1 1/2, 2, 2 1/2, 3
|Adding 2L of sand to the sand and water cake|
|Reading the ingredients for the fruit punch|
|Bowen and Lealou checking their punch will|
fit in the jug
|George calculating his ingredients to make icing|
|Bailey and Cloe adding 1/2 teaspoon of each ingredient.|
1 teaspoon =5mLs so 1/2 teaspoon =2 1/2 mLs
|Thomas and Gwen making a basket to hold|
between 60 and 80 lollies
|Our human scale|
Even though the icing sugar is smaller than the cornflakes it weighs more
|Feeling what about 25 kgs feels like|
Lots of mess, fun and learning.
Some reflections from Room 8
I learnt how to count in 1/2s.
I learnt that weight is measured in grams and that 1,000 grams makes a kilogram.
I learnt that a teaspoon has 5 mLs and how to cut 5 in half.
I learnt 1 litre has 1,000mLs and I counted in thousands.
I learnt to count in 30s because I can count in 3s.
I got better at estimating how many mLs will fit in containers
