  • Display picture of the cruise ship on page 15 in Giants Made by People. Focus child attention on the ship's capacity for holding passengers.
  • Ask how many people they think might be able to fit on the ocean liner.
  • Display a jar filled with 100 objects(pennies, cubes, crayons,etc.)
  • Tell child there is 100 pennies in the jar.
  • Ask: If I give you a penny from this jar, will there be enough pennies for everyone?
  • Build upon child fascination with 100 to help child visualize a cruise ship's capacity(ability to hold several hundred people, their luggage and furniture)
  • Ask child why cruise ship doesn't sink with so much weight on it.
  • Display a clear container filled with water. Place a plastic lid on the surface. Point out that the lid is floating. lace a set of counters(frogs, pennies or any objects) beside container.
  • Ask how many (frogs, pennies, etc.) could I fit on the lid before it begins to sink?
  • Invite child to count with you as you begin to place pennies or other objects one by one on the lid.
  • When the lid begins to tilt into the water and some of the pennies begin to fall off, count the total.
  • Emphasize the last number in the count.
  • Ask how many pennies are able to fit on the lid?
  • Write number on index card or paper and display it next to the lid.
  • Tell child that this number tells us how many pennies the lid can carry without tipping over.
