MAKING A MEASURING
In another project, we used many different-sized containers to measure liquids. This time, we will make containers that will tell exactly how many units of measure they can hold.
Each of you has a jar from home that held peanut butter or mayonnaise, is made of glass, and has no marks on the sides. We have large, white stickers which we can stick onto the side of our jars, in a way that the sticker goes from the bottom to the top of the jar. If your jars are shorter than the stickers, cut off the excess from the stickers.
We have several small containers here, each of them the same size, to be used as our measuring unit.
unit and pour the water from the unit into your jars. After the water
is calm, make a pencil mark on the sticker where the top of the water
is. Continue doing that
This measuring container is called a "measuring graduate," because it can be used to measure different amounts of liquids.
