(Measurement > Using Measurement > Volume)

Volume of a Prism introduces the what, when, why, and how for finding the volume of a prism. On pages 1 and 2 students experience what volume is as they drag cubes to fill a prism.

Page 3 explains how to solve for the volume using the volume formula.

Pages 5 through 9 provides students with real life situations that allow them to see when and why it would be necessary to find the volume of a prism. Students will determine how many boxes will fit into a storage unit and how much water is needed to fill an aquarium as they practice solving for the volume of a prism.
