Combining measurement and mathematics with fine motor work!
The child uses the syringe to measure 5ml increments of liquid into the 3-dimensional vessels (cube, cylinder and so on). The child records how many repetitions they need to fill the vessel, then uses a calculator to multiply the number of repetitions times 5 to find the volume of the vessel.
We used our View-Thru Geometric Solids from our online store but it could be achieved with jars or containers from home.
The fellow in these photos was 4 at the time of the task, I'd recommend the full sequence for ages 4 plus, but younger children can still use the syringe to observe and experiment with measuring volume (but they might not record and calculate).
