Lesson Three – Improvising Measuring Cylinder

Revision and Test

### LEARNING OUTCOME

1. By the end of the lesson, pupils should be able to:

1. state the metric unit of volume;

2. measure amounts of liquids accurately using graduated measuring cylinders, cups or jars;

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

### RATIONALE

Measurement is the action of measuring something.

Volume is the space that is enclosed by a vessel or occupied by a substance.

The international unit of volume measurement is the cubic metre and cubic centimetre.

There are 1000 cubic centimetres in a litre.

Life is so much easier when we know how to measure things, and that is why measurement is so important.

### LEARNING MATERIALS

The teacher will teach the lesson with the aid of:

1. meter rule

2. tape rule

3. desks and tables in the classroom

4. string

6. notebook, and pencil.

### PREVIOUS KNOWLEDGE
