 Today we are going to be comparing and order the volume of liquid in different containers. Volume means the amount of liquid that the container can hold or is holding. Have a look at the 3 containers below. Which one do you think is holding the largest volume of water? Why? How can we check? Watch the videos below to see the volume of water in each container.

All of the liquid was poured out into the same containers and now we can easily compare their volume. The glass was holding more than 400ml, the jug was holding just below 400ml and the box was holding out 300ml. Can you say which container was holding the most? Which was holding the least?


We can use these signs to help us compare the volumes:

< less than

> more than 

= equal


How can we compare our containers?
