One of our math concepts this week was capacity. We started off by filling up containers according to instructions: full, almost full, empty, almost empty and half full. We then saw how different containers hold different amount of items and that sometimes we might think one container holds more or the same than another while it would not. It was lots of fun measuring out water in different containers, first estimating then checking our estimates. You can try as many of these activities as you want at home with different containers – as long as you have mummy’s permission !!!!
