First Grade Math Lesson - Which Holds More or Less

How do your first grade students' math skills measure up? Find out in this interactive math game from featuring measurement with capacity. Children will decide which holds more and which holds less in this fun online math game. Here are some examples of the kinds of math questions your students may be asked:

  • "Which holds more?" Students will choose between a large bowl and a small bowl.
  • "Which holds less?" Students will choose between a drinking cup and a bottle of juice.
  • "Which holds the most?" Students will choose among three different-sized spray bottles.
  • "Which holds the least?" Students will choose among three different-sized crates of apples.

Children will have plenty of built-in tools accessible right in their math practice session to help them make the most out of their measurement practice:

  • A speaker icon in the upper-left corner of the practice screen indicates the read-aloud feature. Students can click this button to hear the question read out loud to them in a clear voice. This tool is a great resource for ESL/ELL students and children who are auditory processors.
  • Opposite, the progress-tracker in the upper-right corner of the practice screen shows students how many questions they have answered so far out of the total number of questions in the math activity.
  • Beneath the progress-tracker, the score-tracker lets students view how many points they have obtained for answering math questions correctly.
  • A hint button in the lower-left corner of the practice screen can be clicked on when students need a little extra help solving a math problem. The hint will display a helpful written or pictorial clue that will point children in the right direction without giving away the answer
  • When children answer a question incorrectly, a detailed explanation page pops up on the practice screen, displaying the correct solution, accompanied by an easy-to-understand explanation.

All of these features were thoughtfully designed by the I Know It team to help students achieve greater understanding of foundational math concepts, learn from mistakes, and improve accuracy as they master each math topic.
