Today we experimented with capacity. Each group had a different task to complete. Firstly, we had to estimate the number of ‘containerfuls’ of rice or water that it would take to fill the main container. These containers ranged in all sorts of sizes and shapes. We weren’t that good to start with but then we began to realise the comparative sizes of the containers and our estimates got much better.
Our teacher was really pleased with our ‘thinking’. She was also so happy with how we got along together! We worked as a team, took turns and did not argue once!
