Now I know by saying “best volume activity ever” you might be thinking, “No, how could it be?” but seriously for my Grade 3/4 class, this is the best activity I have found.
When you teach younger children, you spend a lot of time working on informal units with volume – making cylinders and filling them with blocks, filling containers with sand or rice and trying to figure out which container holds the most. But for older children I had always moved towards some worksheets, which I am not a fan of.
But then…. I found this activity!
It was designed by Tania over at Mrs Poultney’s Ponderings – I first saw it when she blogged about using it with her class – I remember commenting how excited I was to try it. So when it was volume time for us – we did it! Here are some happy snaps….
If you need a volume activity, you can’t go past this one – it is a simple buy, print and copy off – no other preparation required by you. There are a couple of extra surprises in the pack too!
Here’s the link so you can get your copy today, it’s a bargain!
