Volume And Capacity Activity Pack, Featuring The Mitten By Jan Brett

$10.00

Providing volume and capacity focused activities for preK- grade 2, it starts by introducing the capacity through dramatic play.  Then we move on to a volume and capacity sensory exploration.  We make predictions about volume and discuss how width, length, and height all factor in. We talk about volume vs. capacity and play with each.  Finally, we discuss picking appropriate measuring tools, predict how much capacity something has, measure, and record our data.  This unit is very hands on with play based activities at its core!
