Year 3 Compare Capacities

This Year 4 Compare Capacities lesson covers the prior learning of comparing capacity using comparative language, before moving onto the main skill of comparing capacity using litres and millilitres.

The lesson starts with a prior learning worksheet to check pupils’ understanding. If they need more practice, you can choose other resources for this step here.
