Project Play – Estimating


Children learn capacity and volume by filling a container with objects.  Have your child estimate how many dried beans fit on a teaspoon.  Have her count the beans to test her prediction.  Then try a tablespoon.  Ask, “Will it take more or less beans to fill the spoon?”  Use all different size spoons or ladles and different items.  Estimate the capacity before you fill.  Then count and compare your prediction to the actual number.

Happy Playing!
