Thursday 3rd September
Main Lesson Plan
Using your measuring vessels, I’d like you to try and find how many millimetres there are in:
Half a litre
One quarter of a litre
Three quarters of a litre
One third of a litre – roughly, there isn’t an exact amount
Two thirds of a litre – roughly, there isn’t an exact amount
Bonus: can you work out why there is no exact answer to one third of a litre and two thirds of a litre?
If you’ve had a good think about this and still feel like you do not know how to carry out this task, watch the video.
Only watch if you are unsure of what to do.
Write down the quantities that you just tested and how much they equal in millilitres. Do this in your main lesson book (large red book) and see my picture below. Please note that I have left some space on the side of this page, please make sure that you do this as well.
Make a Container
Make a container that holds 100ml of water or as close as you can get to 100ml. You can mark this container with a line if you want so that you know how far to fill the container. The container can be made out of whatever you like, including clay. Although clay might be tricky because if you keep testing how much water it can hold, the clay may become too wet to manage. Maybe you can find a way to make it work without getting the clay too wet or you can make a container using something else that you have at home.
If you are feeling stumped and can’t work out how to do this, listen to the audio for some clues.
