SAEPS Grade 5-6

All about what is happening in grade 5/6


The grade 5/6s have been doing a lot of fun work on measurement, particularly volume and capacity. We made a short cylinder with an A4 piece of paper and then a long cylinder with the same piece of paper. Many students believed that because the surface area of the paper stays the same it’s capacity would also stay the same!!
Guess what happened? The shorter cylinder held more blocks, which means it has a larger capacity!
We also wanted to find out what a metre cubed would look like, so we made it!! We went on to ask ourselves questions like how many students would fit in a cubed metre and how many cubed metres our classroom be.
