PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE –
TOPIC: MEASURING LIQUIDS
By the end of the lesson, the pupils should have attained the following objectives (cognitive, affective and psychomotor) and should be able to –
1. measure amounts of liquids accurately using graduated measuring cylinders, cups or jars;
2.state the metric unit of volume;
3. improvise a measuring cylinder with estimated scales for volumes in metric system.
Using other measuring tools other tools like cups, bottles, etc. for measurement.
The teacher will teach the lesson with the aid of –
measuring cylinders of different sizes, water, other liquids e.g. kerosene, oil, etc., empty jam jars, rulers, strips of paper, pens, notebooks, coke bottles, juice drink packs.
METHOD OF TEACHING
Choose a suitable and appropriate methods for the lessons.
Note – Irrespective of choosing methods of teaching, always introduce an activities that will arouse pupil’s interest or lead them to the lessons.

CONTENT OF THE LESSON
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:
TEACHER’S AND PUPIL’S ACTIVITIES – As stated in the 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.
To conclude the lesson for the week, the teacher revises the entire lesson and links it to the following week’s lesson.
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.
