Measuring Capacity

Today we moved on to measuring capacity. We learned two units of measurement - millilitres and litres and compared the capacities of a range of different bottles and containers. To understand how much 1ml is, we used syringes to measure 1ml of water and hold it in our hands (and definitely didn't squirt the water in anybody's face). On the playground, we discovered what 50ml, 250ml, 500ml and 1 litre of water felt like when it's poured over your head... please don't try that inside your house.
