Fun-filled Bath

Kids love to play in the bathtub. What do they actually play? What common words do they learn in that process?

Blue bottle, milk container, syringe, straw, red cup, big pail, water pump.

Pour, squeeze, blow, squirt, splash, overflow, fill.

Why not include some math words into the activity?  Instead of red cup, call it the 300 millilitre cup.  Refer the blue water bottle by its capacity: the 500 millilitre bottle.

How many squirts of the 20 millilitre syringe does it take to fill the 300 millilitre cup?

There you have it, a fun-filled math conversation in the bath tub.  Try it!
