Activites Activities

In "Room for Ripley, the math concept is measuring capacity using cups, pints, quarts, half gallons, and gallons.

If you would like to have more fun with the math concepts presented in "Room for Ripley, here are a few suggestions: Read the story with the child and talk about what is going on in each picture. Ask questions throughout the story, such as: " How much water is in the tank now?" " Do you think that will be enough for Ripley, or will Carlos have to add more?" " Is a pint more or less than a quart?" Give the child a measuring cup and a large jar or container. Have the child estimate how many cups of water it will take to fill the jar, and then keep track of the cups as he or she fills the container with water. After the container is filled, help the child figure out the capacity of the container. Is it approximately a pint? A quart? A half gallon? A gallon? Look in your kitchen or supermarket and identify items like milk, water, or cottage cheese that come in containers of different capacities. What comes in cups? In pints? In quarts? In half gallons? In gallons?

You can do some of these activities and the following ones with metric measures as well. For example, you can search for liter containers in your kitchen or supermarket, or find three containers that have the same capacity as a liter container.

Following are some activities that will help you extend the concepts presented in "Room for Ripley into a child's life.

Cooking: Make a simple recipe such as instant pudding. Figure out how much more of each ingredient you would need if you wanted to double the recipe.

Party: When your child has friends over, askwhat they would like to drink. Have the child figure out how much juice or soda you need if everyone gets one cup of his or her favorite drink. What if everyone wants two cups?

Around the House: Have the child fill a half-gallon container with water. Then help him or her find three other containers that he or she thinks will hold the same amount of water. Pour the water from the half-gallon container into the other containers to see if they do have the same capacity.

Synopsis:

Carlos pours cups, pints and quarts of water into his fish bowl, getting ready for his new puppy, Ripley. Readers can learn about capacity as they see just how much water it takes to make room for Ripley!
