Cup Capacity Tool: Measuring Cup

Students examine containers and their capacity. They fill a one-cup measuring cup with water and pour cups of water into other containers. Through observation, students discover how many cups make a pint, and how many teaspoons make a tablespoon. Students write in their science journals about their observations. They sing a song about measurement to the tune of "I'm a Little Teapot."
