Help your student become a(n) Volume Quantity Recognizer

Filling containers with objects (cubes), sand, or water and talking about capacity (e.g., "That bucket holds a lot of water!") is helpful. Pouring water into different containers and trying to fill a bucket using a smaller cup are worthwhile for the experiences and the discussions they engender.
