Children of Crisis: Selections from the Pulitzer Prize-winning five-volume Children of Crisis series by Robert ColesIn the 1950s Robert Coles began studying, living among, and, above all, listening to American children. The results of his efforts--revealed in five volumes published between 1967 and 1977--constitute one of the most searching and vigorous social studies ever undertaken by one person in the United States. Here, heard often in their own voices, are Americas children of crisis: African American children caught in the throes of the Souths racial integration; The children of impoverished migrant workers in Appalachia; Children whose families were transformed by the migration from South to North, from rural to urban communities; Latino, Native American, and Eskimo children in the poorest communities of the American West; The children of Americas wealthiest families confronting the burden of their own privilege. This volume restores to print a masterwork of psychological and sociological inquiry--a book that, in its focus on how children learn and develop in the face of rapid change and social upheaval, speaks directly and pointedly to our own times. Robert Coles is a professor of psychiatry and medical humanities at the Harvard Medical School, a research psychiatrist for the Harvard University Health Services, and the James Agee Professor of Social Ethics at Harvard College.

Volume - Definition with Examples
Capacity is how much space there is available to hold something. Capacity is usually measured by reading from a scale using metric units, for example litre or millilitre. For example this jug has a capacity of 1 litre, but the volume of water in the jug is only ml. This time we are going to add different volumes of liquids to a measuring cylinder until it reaches capacity. The capacity of my measuring cylinder is ml on the scale it actually holds a bit more. The most dense liquid needs to go on the bottom so the order should be golden syrup, milk, water, oil.

We enjoy using everyday items to test out our science ideas. So many classic science experiments can be done around the house! Grab some different size bowls, water, rice and something to measure with and get started! Make sure to check out our water absorption activity with sponges too! Science, technology, engineering, and math are so important for children to explore even at an early age!
In Y2 children will begin to choose and use appropriate units to measure volume/ capacity, for example using millilitres to measure medicine and litres to.
