Maths time

Counting time again!

We have been learning about measuring and using words to describe height, (tall, short) length, (long, short)

distance, (far, near) weight, (heavy, light)

Today we are going to use words to describe capacity:

full, empty, half full, nearly full, nearly empty


Capacity word mat

Find some different size containers form around the house. Fill a bowl with a little water (hope this is ok!)

Explore emptying and filling the containers.

Then find the smallest container or a spoon and count how many scoops it takes to fill the different size containers.

Which hols the most? Which holds the least?
