## Magic Potion

### Posted by Perri Wilkinson | Posted in Capacity | Posted on September 14, 2016

This is a great activity to help students learn how many millilitres are in 1 litre.

Students can pretend to be a good or bad witch or wizard and create a potion that is exactly 1 litre. They need to name their potion and write down their ingredients. They can design any type of potion they like, for example, an invisibility potion, and their ingredients can be anything also, for example, unicorn hair, frog legs etc.

There are 4 different magic potion bottles for different abilities.
