### Key learning points

- The volume of liquid in a container can be measured in millilitres.
- When comparing volume, if the containers are the same, we can compare the level of liquid in the container.
- When comparing volume, if the containers are different, we need to take read the scale on the measuring container.
- Counting in 10s, 20s, 25s and 50s helps to read scales.

### Common misconception

Children may read the scale incorrectly - confusion between equal parts and marks on the scale.

The scale is a number line. Remember to look at the number of equal parts between the marked numbers not the marks themselves.
