In The Garden
Find The Following In The Figure Above
- The boy on the bicycle
- The dog
- The girl on the swing
- The tree
- Lengths can be measured using our hand span, foots pan, pace, and cubit.
- Look at the buildings below.
- We can see that the building in the second figure is shorter than the first building.
- Weights can be measured by using a balance.
- We can notice that the heavier pan will go down.
- When the pans balance, the weight on both the pans is same.
- Using a weighing machine, we can measure the weight in kilogram(kg) and gram(g).
- For example, you can weigh your school bag, shoes, tiffin, etc using this weighing machine.
Measuring With A Scale
- We can measure the length with a centimetre scale.
- Smaller lengths are measured in centimetres.
- We can easily measure the lengths of the smaller objects we use in the school like a pencil box, an eraser, a sharpener etc.
- We can use cups, mugs, small vessels, bottles etc, to measure the quantity of liquid. This is the way we measure the capacity of buckets.
- Look at the glass which contains more water and the one which contains less water.
The juice in the first glass is more than the second glass.
- If we look at the capacities of a bottle and a jug, a jug can hold 7 glasses of water and a bottle can hold 4 glasses of water. So, who has the more capacity?
We can easily say that the capacity of the jug is more than the bottle.
- Water takes the shape of the container it is put in Have a look at the figures below:
- Liquid is measured in litres (l).
- On measuring the capacity of liquid we can easily differentiate the difference in their litres.
- A bucket can hold more capacity of water than a bowl. Similarly,
- A cooking pot can hold less water than a cooking vessel.
