### CONTENT OF THE LESSON

INTRODUCTION (MEANING)

MEASURING IN LIQUIDS

Volume is the measure of how much a container can hold.

The metric measure units of volume are based on the liter.

The milliliter (ml) is the smallest metric measure of volume and equals 1/1000 of a liter.

The centiliter (cl) is the next largest unit of volume and equals 1/100 of a liter.

Measuring the volume of liquids in:

1. mI

2. cI

3. I

### PRESENTATION

To deliver the lesson, the teacher adopts the following steps:

1. To introduce the lesson, the teacher revises the previous lesson. Based on this, he/she asks the pupils some questions;

2. Provides pupils with measuring cylinders and graduated jars and cups;

Pupil’s Activities – Measure the volume of liquids in metric units.

3. Uses appropriate chart and guide pupils to take correct readings of liquids in the measuring cylinder.

Pupil’s Activities – Record their measurements correctly with units.

4. Guides pupils to improvise measuring cylinders with estimated scales;

Pupil’s Activities – Improvise and calibrate measuring cylinders with scales estimated in metrics units. Find equivalent volumes of market measures using standard calibrated instruments.

5. Display written volume of content in common soft drinks and juice drink packs (e.g. coke 35cl).

Pupil’s Activities – Finds out volumes of soft drinks and juice drinks on their packs.

### CONCLUSION

To conclude the lesson for the week, the teacher revises the entire lesson and links it to the following week’s lesson.

### LESSON EVALUATION

Pupils to –

1. measure amounts of liquids accurately using graduated measuring cylinders;

2. state the metric units of volume;

3. improvise a measuring cylinder with estimated scales in metric system.
