Capacity of Containers ?

Last week our foundation children were learning all about the capacity of containers. We used a lot of fantastic words to describe how much of each liquid we needed for our mad science experiments. We needed a ‘few drops’ of food colouring and washing up liquid in ‘half a glass’ of milk. 5 mentos went into ‘half a bottle’ of coke and then we used a ‘full bottle’ of vinegar to mix with the bicarbonate of soda which then totally ‘overflowed!’.
