Ready for your fifth graders to take their learning of cubic units to the next level? With this worksheet, students will count the stacked centimeter blocks to determine the volume of the solid object.
Calculating the volume of rectangular prisms is a new skill that is introduced in 5th grade. Students will apply mathematical formulas to find the volume of different kinds of figures and also determine the volume of a figure composed of two connected rectangular prisms. Learners will also work with other kinds of measurement when they make larger or smaller versions of figures (to scale) and learn to convert measurements.
Challenge students to convert measurements between their metric counterparts! Students will relate the measurements to real-world objects. Use this lesson as support for the Converting Metric Measurements in Word Problems lesson.
Students will complete a measurement table by calculating yards, feet, and inches through converting the information provided. Then, students will use their conversion table to solve measurement word problems.
