It is the teacher’s task to introduce concepts of measurement in a practical way to
Intermediate Phase learners. Use the attribute of volume and give three practical examples
of how the teacher can introduce this concept
When you fill up your vehicle, the volume of gasoline your gas tank holds determines your purchase. Whether you fill up with gallons or liters of gasoline or other fuels, the amount is a volume calculation. On a smaller scale, when you fill up a gas can to take to another vehicle or to use the gas to power another device, you again use volume for determining the amount needed.
Volume is used in most house-cleaning chores. When washing clothes, you add a specific mount of laundry liquid to the washing machine based on the load or volume of the tub and the clothes being washed. When using concentrated cleaning detergents, you add a specified amount of the cleaner to a clearly defined amount of water. Many times you apply a fixed volume of liquid to whatever you are cleaning.
Cooking and Baking
The number of measuring cups and spoons in the average person’s kitchen is indicative of how often volume is used when cooking. From the 1/4 cup of oil that is needed in a brownie recipe to the quart of chicken broth that is required for chicken noodle soup, volume is a measurement that is used in almost every recipe.
