For your kids to enjoy squeezing while learning to measure and estimate liquid volume
In this activity kids will have fun squeezing the milk while learning to measure and assess the volume of liquid. They see how the liquid is measured and guess how much is in the glove and how much will be needed to reach the level. This activity introduces the concept of measuring liquids before learning standard units. Let’s play.
