Content for fourth class

*The child should be enabled to*

- Estimate, compare, measure and record capacity using appropriate metric units (l, ml) and selecting suitable instruments of measurement. Become familiar with major and minor markings on measuring containers
*(e.g. 100 ml markings, half l, quarter l)?*

- Rename units of capacity in l and ml 1500 ml = 1 l 500 ml

*250 ml = 0.25 l = quarter litre or 2 l 150 ml = 2150 ml = 2.15 l**Confine to examples requiring only two places of decimals*

- Solve and complete practical tasks and problems involving the addition, subtraction, multiplication and simple division of units of capacity (l, ml)
