Volume

Today in math Ms. Lirenman talked to us about volume as a way of measuring how much fits inside a container.  We then got to play around with filling containers and figuring out their volume.  We used different objects to fill containers, and different measurement tools to fill the containers.  At the end of our exploration we had to decide if a rectangular box had a larger or smaller volume than a round box. We thought about it and in the end we tested our predictions.  Here are some photos of us during the free exploration time.
