The year 3.2 were busy learning about capacity by participating in hands-on activities to help them understand this topic in a more concrete way.The students filled different containers with coloured water to learn about litres and millilitres.  They took part in several investigative tasks, such as pouring 1L of water into containers of different sizes, finding out how many containers of a specific amount needed to be poured into a 1L container to fill it up, reading the scale on different containers to find out how much liquid was poured in them, as well as pouring two different amounts of liquid into a larger container to find their total and recording their answers by drawing the capacity on a given jug.
