Reflection: Student Communication Exploring Liquids - Section 3: Explore



When the students made their predictions, some students predicted that Cup A or Cup B had the most water because those containers were mostly full.  When they measured the water, they discovered that each container held the same amount of water. This investigation helped students to discover that liquids take up the space of its container. Also, they learned that the size or shape of the container does not determine the amount of liquid in the containers. In measuring the liquids, it helped to correct students’ misconceptions.
