Volume Conversions

  1. Have measuring cups, gallon containers, liter bottles, ounce measurements, etc.
  2. You will also need a list of questions for your students ready. These should be questions dealing with measurements and comparisons that they will need to figure out. For example: How many cups does it take to fill a 2-liter bottle?
  3. You should also have estimation questions where students have to guess the number of cups that will fill different containers and then measure to find out.
  4. You may want to have a recording sheet premade for this activity that goes along with the questions that you choose to ask.
