# LESSON 7 Measuring Volume of Containers

In the story, *Elixir of Youth*, Sam and Tess use a bucket and gallon jugs to find the volume of the vase.

**Volume** is a measurement of size. It is the amount of space that an object takes up. If the object is a container, like a box or a bottle, then the volume is the amount of space inside it.

- Sam and Tess measured the volume of containers at the museum to solve a mystery. What are other times when we think about the volume of containers?
- What tools can you use to measure the volume of containers?

Complete the *Converting Standard Volume Units* pages in the *Student Activity Book* to practice solving problems with volume using standard units of measure.
