As part of our water theme we learned all about capacity.  We looked at lots of different liquids and shapes of bottles and containers to see how much liquid they held.  We learned about the terms full, empty and half full/empty.  We made estimates to see how many cups of water it would take to fill particular objects.  We were very close with a few of our estimates.  During Aistear we explored more with water and used different containers to transfer and fill/empty water.  The boys and girls loved using pipettes, cups, bowls, plates, pots, spoons and measuring cups to explore, engage in ‘recipes’ and ‘experiments’.  They really enjoyed working with water!
