Measuring Metrically with Maggie - This resource offers strategies using the metric system to measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses of objects. Scroll to the bottom of the page to access questions that the teacher might use in a whole group, small group, or individual setting.

## Station Activities

Students can practice determining elapsed time by using this interactive elapsed time matching activity offered at quia.com: http://www.quia.com/mc/66516.html

This is a link to ready-made printable cards that contain word problems that have the student find elapsed time. These can be used whole group or in a center. (Source: K-5 Math Teaching Resources): http://www.k-5mathteachingresources.com/support-files/elapsedtimewordproblems.pdf

Students are asked to choose other containers that will hold a liter and then investigate to see if their estimates are correct. (Source: K-5 Math Teaching Resources): http://www.k-5mathteachingresources.com/support-files/moreorlessthanaliter.pdf

## Interactive Activities

Can You Fill It?: This is a link to a game that students can use to practice estimating how much liquid an object can hold. http://pbskids.org/cyberchase/math-games/can-you-fill-it/
