Egg Volume

  1. Have your kids work in small groups or pairs to find the volume of an egg.
  2. They should use cm3 to estimate their answer. They should write out exactly how they came up with their estimates. Your kids will need measuring tapes or string to find circumference.
  3. In order for them to check their estimates, they can actually measure the liquid volume of the egg. You will need a mL flask in which they can measure this.
  4. They can compare the answers easily because 1 mL = 1 cm3.
