Estimator Cup Challenge - Water Filling Stations

Our new water filling stations are amazing. It is wonderful to see so many students drinking fresh water and not using plastic bottles that pollute our environment. A healthy, green choice is being made every time we fill up our water bottles.

Our challenge to start the year is designed around  our water filling stations. We are offering two challenges:

1) There is a cube shaped vase in the lobby. How many seconds would it take to fill the vase to the top, where one more drop would overflow?   The jar cannot be taken off the shelf. It can be measured without removing it.  (This is only available for k-3)

__________________  Seconds are needed to fill the vase until it is ready to overflow.

2) Looking at the table below of number of bottles filled per station on Wednesday Morning September 26th, what do you predict that number will be on Friday Morning October 12th? The fountains were put in use late this summer and were only used consistently when school started.
