# Year 2 Measurements - Capacity

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 6 and 7 in year 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with choosing and using appropriate standard units to estimate and measure capacity.

Measuring capacity accurately and choosing the correct standard unit from litres or millilitres is an important skill and may take some practise. Children in Year 2 are taught to understand that millilitres (ml) are the standard unit used to measure containers with smaller capacities, whilst litres are used for larger containers.
