measuring litres ideas!

Discussion in 'Primary' started by chocolover, Oct 19, 2011.

  1. Hi all,
    I have so many times got children just to do empty water and measure it. I would like to think of more inspirational ideas to learn litres/half litres and estimating it.
    Any thoughts/resources people could share?
    For Year 2

    I got Yr 2 to make milkshakes with Crusha syrups and milk - they really enjoyed it! I asked two boys from Yr 6 to decide which was the tastiest!

    You could link it to problem solving and making potions.
    You could show the children lots of coloured water (potions eg sky dust, dragons breath etc) look at measuring them. The tell the children they need to make a spell by using 1 litre of potion. What can you put together to make 1 litre
