## Reflection: Student Feedback About How Many Milliliters? - Section 5: Closing

At the end of the lesson, the students' feedback helped inform my understanding of how 4th graders think! Many students thought that container D would hold the most water because it was the tallest and that container F would hold the least because it was the shortest. However, container F held more than container D. Next time when I teach this lesson, I'll know that many of my students might have the preconceived idea that a taller container will hold more. Being aware of this misconception ahead of this lesson will help me to further support the development of conceptual understanding through questioning and student conferences.
