Measure Capacity - Complex
Assess or extend pupils' ability to read scales with different intervals.
Find the capacity of each container by pouring it into the measuring jug and working out the value using the scale. The options screen gives a huge amount of control in terms of setting "reading scales" challenges. The jug can be set to have reasonably simple, labelled scales or quite complex, unlabelled ones. Get pupils to explain how they have deduced the answer. A simpler version of this activity works with just 10 intervals of 100ml.
