One of the best ways for your child to explore volume and capacity at home is with different sized containers. In this video by ABC Education, puppets Flynn and Dodly test a range of different containers to investigate which one holds the most.
After watching the video, help your child re-enact Flynn and Dodly's mathematical experiment. Using a couple of different-sized containers, get your child to estimate and then work out how much water or how many pasta pieces it takes to fill each one.
Which container holds the most? Is the result what they expected?
