WARM-UP: Go to QUIA and take the PRACTICE QUIZ: Measuring with Metric– http://www.quia.com/quiz/5485324.html
TASK: Today we will finish our OUTPUT for Measuring Mass and will begin learning how to measure volume and capacity.
USING RACE: We will answer our conclusion question using the RACE method.
Capacity and volume are often used interchangeably (the mean the same thing). However,
- Capacity– The amount that something can hold. (The space inside a container that can be filled.)
- Usually it means volume, such as milliliters (ml) or liters (l) in Metric and refers to an amount of liquid that can be held in a container.
- Example: “The bucket has a capacity of 9 liters
- Volume– The amount of space something takes up.
- Used to measure solid objects.
- Usually recorded in cubic units.
- Is also used to measure liquids.
- Meniscus- The curved surface of a liquid.
- Look at it at eye level to make a reading.
