I am blogging this because I am proud of it
We are learning about weight and capacity


Weight and Capacity


I filled a box with 16 of the tissue boxes on the table so they fit snuggly.  What could the measurements of the large box be?




At the supermarket Mum brought exactly 12 L of drink.  She bought some soft drink and some fruit juice. Some were in boxes of cans, some were bottles etc.  What drinks collection could she have bought?

Sizes are - cans 355 ml s, small bottles of juice 300mls, small bottles of fizz are 330mls, big bottles 2L, middle size 1 and 1/2L, big big bottles of juice 3L and the medium size is 1L.


  1. 21 cans-7L, 1 Big big bottle of juice 3L=10L, 1 Big bottle 2L=12L.
  2. 33 cans-11L, Medium juice bottle 1L=12L
  3. 3 big big bottle of juice- 3,  3L=9L, 3 medium juice- 1L=3L=12L


If a dog's weight is rounded to 18kg - what are some of the possibilities that his weight could be?
18.4, 18.1, 18.3, 18.2
17.5, 17.6, 17.7, 17.8, 17.9


Create the mix of fruit in a  fruit bowl where the fruit weighs 2.4 kgs.  Weigh the fruit - banana, apple, lemon, mandarin and pear.  Work out your mix of fruit.
  1. 100 ⅕ apple, 4 banana, 2 pear = 2.4kgs
  2. 10 leamons, 2 bananas, 4 pears, ⅖ apple


Mandarin 0.124
Leamon 0..166
apple 0,20gg
pear:0.168

banana 0.191
