WALT – Learning to compare capacity.

 

Starter

 

1) 

 

2) 

 

3)  Use the number line below to help you answer the following questions: 

  

 6 + ___  = 15

 17 + ___ = 20

 ___ + 5   = 20

 15 – 12 = ___

 7 - ___ = 1

 ___ - 5 = 10

 

 

 

Capacity is the total amount of liquid a container can hold. When something holds as much liquid as it can it is at “full capacity”.

 

We can compare containers by saying they have “more” or “less” capacity, for example...

 

A swimming pool will hold more water than a cup, so we can say it has more capacity.

 

 

 

(Answer – the bigger jug can hold most water - it has the most capacity)

 

Task – Which holds more?

 

Which of these containers can hold more liquid?

1) A cup or a bucket?

 

 

2) A jar or a spoon?

 

 

3) A glass or a fish tank?

 

Task – Can you put these containers in order of capacity, starting with the least (less) capacity.
