A liter is a measurement of volume. It tells you how much liquid is inside a container.
1 liter = 1000 cubic centimeters
(That is a box that is 10 cm long, 10 cm wide, and 10 cm high.)
or
1 liter = 1 cubic decimeter
(That is a box that is 1 dm long, 1 dm wide, and 1 dm high.)
Here two most common metric measures used for liquids are:
LITER and MILLILITER
A milliliter is about how much liquid an eyedropper can hold.
= 1 milliliter
The best way to understand how much liquid a liter will hold
is to make a liter box yourself.
1. Create a template like this on construction paper in which each square is 10 cm x 10 cm).
2. Cut on the solid lines.
3. Fold on the dotted lines and fold back the paste tabs.
4. Use glue and tape to hold the box together.
5. Put a plastic bag inside the box to use as a liner.
Your completed liter box should look something like this:
6. Experiment with different amounts of liquid to see how much 1 liter will hold.
Here are some containers I found in my kitchen.
Can you determine what the metric label on each one says?
