Volume is the measurement of space occupied in three dimensions. Practice calculating the volume of 3-D shapes using a variety of techniques and with real-life examples through a series of engaging problems and questions.
Students will begin to calculate volume of different rectangular prisms using base ten cubes and then transition to using the formula V = L x W x H. Students will then practice using the legendary fifth grade activity, Cootie Catchers.
This worksheet will challenge students’ understanding of volume and the equation l x w x h = V. Then, once they solve the equation have them draw the 3-D objects. The objects will all be rectangular prisms.
