Today we have been learning about Capacity - Capacity is how much something holds.
We had a challenge to find out which cup would hold the most water. We brainstormed lots of different ways to find out which hold the most.
We used the beans to help us. We filled the glass to the top with beans and then we poured them into the paper cup. We noticed that the paper cup over-flowed. The paper cup couldn't hold as many beans as the glass. Therefore... the glass would hold the most water!
We proved this by putting water into the glass and tipping it into the paper cup. The paper cup over-flowed. It does not hold as much water.
Soooooo...... if you are really thirsty, have a drink from the glass.
