In this ongoing center, students first play freely with rice and various containers. On their next visit, students try to determine how many scoops from various containers (such as a 1/4 cup) are needed to fill a larger container (such as a 1 cup). Record sheets may be used to formally represent the relations between cups, pints, and quarts.
The activities in this learning center connect to the following NCTM Standards:
• Data Analysis
And the following Common Core Standards:
• Measurement and Data
Data Analysis and Probability: Students can graph the results of their volume experimentation!
