# Capacity Mats

Description

Introducing our Capacity Mats, the ultimate resource for igniting your students' curiosity about capacity and measurement. These engaging mats are designed to make learning a breeze as students draw, order and fill jars with various objects, all while exploring the concept of capacity in a hands-on and engaging way. The Capacity Mats offer an immersive and tactile learning experience, allowing students to interact and order real-world objects and containers making the concept of capacity tangible and fun.

• Use during group rotation activities.
• Reuse by laminating and drawing with whiteboard markers.

Suitable for
• Fast Finishers
• Relief Teachers
• Parents
