**Liquid Volume Hunt**

Family Note Today your child used a set of benchmark beakers to estimate and measure liquid volume in liters (L) and milliliters (mL). Liquid volume is a measure of how much liquid a container can hold. Help your child look at labels to find containers of liquids that are measured in milliliters and liters. Have your child record the items in the table below.

Please send clean, empty, unbreakable containers to school for our next lesson.

Question 1.

Examine labels on items for liquid volume measured in liters or milliliters. Record your findings in the table below.

Answer:

Flavored water bottle = 530ml.

non-flavored water bottle = 1 liter.

orange color bottle = 500 ml.

green color bottle = 250 ml.

yellow color bottle = 750 ml.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

Liquid volume is a measure of how much liquid a container can hold.

containers of liquids that are measured in milliliters and liters.

I am assuming the bottles with liquids.

Flavored water bottle = 530ml.

non-flavored water bottle = 1 liter.

orange color bottle = 500 ml.

green color bottle = 250 ml.

yellow color bottle = 750 ml.

Question 2.

Circle an item that you can use as a benchmark for 1 liter.

Answer:

The item is non-flavored water bottle.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

Liquid volume is a measure of how much liquid a container can hold.

containers of liquids that are measured in milliliters and liters.

I am assuming the bottles with liquids.

The item is non-flavored water bottle.

Question 3.

Put a star next to an item that you can use as a benchmark for 500 milliliters.

Answer:

The item is orange color bottle.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

Liquid volume is a measure of how much liquid a container can hold.

containers of liquids that are measured in milliliters and liters.

I am assuming the bottles with liquids.

so the 500 ml contains orange color bottle.

**Number Stories with Measures**

Family Note Today your child solved number stories involving time, volume, mass, and length. Help your child make sense of the stories below. Problems 1 and 2 are similar to those we solved in class. For the Try This problem, you may wish to remind your child that 2 halves make 1 whole.

Solve. Use drawings or number models to show your work.

Question 1.

The liquid volume of 1 juice box is about 150 mL. What is the liquid volume of 3 juice boxes?

about

Answer:

The liquid volume of 3 juice boxes = 450 ml.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

The liquid volume of 1 juice box is about 150 ml.

150 + 150 = 300.

300 + 150 = 450.

150 x 3 = 450.

so the liquid volume of 3 juice boxes = 450 ml.

Question 2.

Art club ends at 3:30 P.M. Your mom arrives to pick you up at 3:10 P.M. If the teacher lets you out 5 minutes late, about how long does your mom have to wait?

about

Answer:

The number of minutes mom have to wait = 25 minutes.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

Art club ends at 3:30 P.M.

Mom arrives to pick up at 3:10 P.M.

If the teacher lets you out 5 minutes late.

3:30 + 5 = 3:35.

3:35 – 3:10 = 3:25.

so the mom have to wait for 25 minutes.

Question 3.

Anastasia’s water bottle has a liquid volume of about 1 liter. She drinks about 1 \(\frac{1}{2}\) bottles of water every day.

About how many liters of water does Anastasia drink in 5 days? You may draw a picture.

about

Answer:

The number of liters of water does Anastasia drink in 5 days = 7.5 liters.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

Anastasia’s water bottle has a liquid volume of about 1 liter.

She drinks about 1 \(\frac{1}{2}\) bottles of water every day.

1 day = 1.5.

5 x 1.5 = 7.5.

so the number of liters of water does Anastasia drink in 5 days = 7.5 liters.

**Sorting Fractions**

Family Note Today your child looked for patterns to help order fractions with the same numerator. Children recognized that as a fraction’s denominator gets larger the fraction gets smaller. They were able to write this as a rule for ordering fractions with the same numerator. For Problem 1, your child will sort a set of fractions into two groups: fractions greater than 1 and fractions less than 1. In Problem 2, your child will look for patterns to help sort any set of fractions into these two groups.

Question 1.

Look at the fractions below and sort them into two groups: fractions less than 1 and fractions greater than 1. Use the number lines on the following page to help you.

\(\frac{1}{2}, \frac{2}{3}, \frac{6}{4}, \frac{3}{2}, \frac{7}{8}, \frac{5}{3}, \frac{6}{8}, \frac{7}{6}\)

Answer:

The fraction less than 1 = 1/2, 2/3, 7/8, 6/8.

The fraction greater than 1 = 6/4, 3/2, 5/3, 7/6.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

the fractions are 1/2, 2/3, 7/8, 6/8, 6/4, 3/2, 5/3, 7/6.

the fractions less than 1 = 1/2, 2/3, 7/8, 6/8.

the fraction greater than 1 = 6/4, 3/2, 5/3, 7/6.

Question 2.

Look for a pattern in the fractions you sorted. Describe a pattern that can help you decide whether a fraction is less than 1 or greater than 1.

Fraction Number Lines

Answer:

The fractions that are less than 1 is the numerator is less than the denominator.

the fractions that are greater than 1 is the numerator is greater than the denominator.

Explanation:

In the above-given question,

given that,

the fractions less than 1 are 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, 2/3, 3/4.
