Class 2 have been learning all about capacity and comparing different containers.
A task was set… Which team could move water from one container to another the quickest?
Knowing this the children chose the container they would like to use.
Red Team won!
We soon realised that the bigger the container, the more water we could carry and the quicker we would win the race. We raced again with this new knowledge.
Orange team won!
We then experimented with different types of containers. It took us awhile to figure the funnel out. Why did we keep loosing the water?
