Estimate and Measure Liquid Volume
The purpose of this lesson is for students to use liters to measure and estimate liquid volumes.
In previous lessons, students learned that liquid volume is a measurable attribute and that liters can be used to measure liquid volume. Students use this experience to match containers with estimated liquid volumes they can hold. They compare the marks on a ruler to the marks on a container and learn to use a container with liter marks to measure liquid volume.
- Measure and estimate liquid volumes of objects using standard units of liters (L).
- Let’s measure and estimate liquid volume.
