A sorting activity to help students identify containers that should be measured in fluid ounces, cups, pints, quarts, and gallons.
This hands-on resource will make a great addition to your teacher toolbox for teaching capacity!
Print the resource on cardstock for increased durability, then cut and distribute to your students. Alternatively, put these into a center for independent work.
Students must sort the object pictures according to whether they would be measured in fluid ounces, cups, pints, quarts, or gallons. Some picture cards could be sorted into more than one category. Encourage students to justify their thinking and reasoning.
Ask your fast finishers to research the actual capacities of some of the containers on the cards, then share this information with the class!
