    This is such a great simple way to set the framework for volume. I find a lot of students forget what volume is or mix up with area. Providing tasks such as these which create joy and excitement and potentially bring up memories of Jar Guesses is like the picture perfect way of developing emotion. I know myself I can’t help bring up a memory as a kid about asking my teacher to run a jelly bean jar guessing contest within the school. If only my teacher had used an activity like this to help me understand volume, I feel it would have prevented lots of confusion over measurement.

    Thanks for bringing forth a great idea!
