5:01 Measurement
Find the volume of each model and draw the top view. Capital L for litres. Find the difference in the capacity of the containers.
5:02 Volume and Capacity
Count the blocks to find the volume of each model. Each block stands for 1 cm cubed. Estimate and then measure to find the capacity of each container. Draw a 1 cm grid on the front of each box and determine how many cubic centimetre blocks would fill it. Find the dimensions of the open-top box that could be made from the net. Estimate the capacity. Make a prism and estimate capacity. List some containers. Order their capacity.
5:03 Volume in layers
Find the volume of the models - 1 block = 1 cm cubed. Complete the grid to show how many cubic centimetre blocks were used in each. What is the volume of a model made to the given specifications.
5:04 Calculating volume
Find the volume of each prism using: Volume = Length x Breadth x Height. Complete the tables by finding the volume of each prism.
5:04C Calculating volume
Use the formula, Volume = Length x Breadth x Height V = L x B x H to find the volume of each model. Find the volume of a prism with the given measurements

Test of Volume and Capacity
5:05 Volumes and capacities
Write the measurements in the shorter form. How many cubic centimetres have the same volume as the given number of base 10 shorts. Estimate then measure the capacity of each object, in cubic centimetres. Discuss accuracy of measurements. Would it be easy to measure the capacity of a house in cm cubed? Circle the objects that have a volume too large to be measured in cubic centimetres. Complete the table of units. List three objects that have a volume that would be measured in cubic metres.
5:06 The cubic metre
Estimate to the nearest cubic metre, the capacity of the objects. Circle the models that represent one cubic metre. Match each object to the label that best describes its volume. Would the capacity of these objects be larger or smaller than their volume? Order the volumes from smallest to largest.
5:07 Cubic metres
Write these measurements using the abbreviation for cubic metres. Order the capacity of the containers/ objects (smallest to largest). Write the unit used (cubic m or cm), to measure the volume or capacity of the objects. Match each container to its capacity.
5:08 Thousandths in measurement
Change millilitres to litres. Show each measurement using a decimal point. Change the measurements to kilograms. Order measurements from lightest to heaviest. What is the capacity of each group of containers? Which group holds most/ least etc.
5:09 Millilitres and cubic centimetres
Follow the procedure - To show the relationship between millilitres and cubic centimetres, using blocks to displace water. Complete the table.
5:10 Volume of irregular solids
Find the volume of each irregular solid by displacement - 1 mL = 1 cubic cm.

5:MG05 Millilitres and litres
Match each container with its volume in mL and L. Estimate the volume of liquid left in each container. Convert given volumes between mL or L. Estimate how many different sized cups could be filled by the bottle shown. Share fairly between given numbers of people.
5:MG05C Volume and capacity
Using litres and mililitres, reading a scale, matching objects with their capacity, ordering the capacity of containers.
5:MG30 Volume
Volume measured in cubic centimetres, the volume of models, estimating the volume of real life objects, making a model using Base 10 ones.
5:MG30C Measurement
Find the volume of each model and draw the top view. Capital L for litres. Find the difference in the capacity of the containers.
5:MG31 Comparing volume
Find the number of cubic centimetre blocks in each model. What is a disadvantage of using cubic centimetre blocks as a unit to measure volume?
5:MG32 Volume and Capacity
Count the blocks to find the volume of each model. Each block stands for 1 cm cubed. Estimate and then measure to find the capacity of each container. Draw a 1 cm grid on the front of each box and determine how many cubic centimetre blocks would fill it. Find the dimensions of the open-top box that could be made from the net. Estimate the capacity. Make a prism and estimate capacity. List some containers. Order their capacity.
5:MG52 The cubic metre
Estimate to the nearest cubic metre, the capacity of the objects. Circle the models that represent one cubic metre. Match each object to the label that best describes its volume. Would the capacity of these objects be larger or smaller than their volume? Order the volumes from smallest to largest.
5:MG53 Volumes and capacities
