Measurement Inquiry - For CAP classrooms, this could double in the discovery center with a graph (children put their name under the color they think has the most)-- Also, this is important- please use non-breakable PLASTIC jars and hot glue the lids on. :)

There are some other cute ideas here too :)) Success in Second Grade: Friday Freebie!

The Imagination Tree: Exploring Capacity with Coloured Water

We struggled with rounding this year. Instead of using an arrow we put the "boss" in a box. Same principle and it fixed the problem of forgetting the process!

Math Problem Solving: Exploring Capacity - Kindergarten Kindergarten (love these hands-on exploration activities!!)

A set of 10 fun, hands-on challenge activities to investigate capacity. Great for reinforcing key vocabulary and concepts. The visual capacity challenge cards also come with a ‘Teacher Guide’ – ideal for double-sided laminating. Activities include sorting containers relating to capacity and finding out which container will be best for a thirsty Ted to drink from. Why not display our capacity key word cards to reinforce key vocabulary such as full, empty and half full

Label the differently filled bottles.
