Product Description
Use this fun, versatile resource to teach or review volume of cylinders with your students! The questions come together nicely to give your students enough information to lead them to discover the concepts for themselves. These questions are designed to get your students thinking and seeing the patterns that emerge in mathematics and then making the connections! There is much more than just reviewing with formulas. Let your students learn how to find volume with real life examples and engaging graphics to help make the connection to the real life application behind the math.

If you liked my Area and Circumference of Circles activities, you will love these new resources! These resources are made with the same thoughtful design but in a different, more inclusive format.

Pair it with my Surface Area of Cylinders activity to gain a deeper understanding of the relationships between the dimensions of this 3D figure!

If your students have trouble and need extra space to work out their practice problems, worksheets are also included with workspace.

You can use the entire resource as a booklet (that can be glued into their interactive notebooks) or separate all the different parts and used separately.

Differentiate with these blank template versions for different level learners.

Fill in the blanks with easier numbers (smaller, whole numbers) for students who are struggling. Answers can be quickly and easily generated from online calculators (google ”volume of rectangular prism calculator”).

Have enrichment students measure real 3D objects or estimate the measurements to create their own problems. Then have them exchange worksheets to check each other’s work!

Eco-Friendly Version (Ink-Friendly Pages)
Eco-friendly pages designed to print in low ink for those who want to save ink or only has a black and white printer. Same material without the frills!

Answer Keys


Q: Why is this resource different from others?

A: My resources are designed to pack in as much learning as possible. There are other topics integrated in as review (for example, for this resource there are some questions that review multiplication of decimals) to create a multifaceted activity.

These new resources are versatile and informative! Anyone can use them! They are basically a lesson plan come to life, packaged in a little booklet. They’re good for enrichment classes, remedial classes, sub plans, or adult learning courses! The pages were made to be self explanatory and self exploratory.

Print the pages back to back and use it as an informational booklet. Or print the pages separately and separate the different pieces to be used in interactive notebooks, practice sheets, vocabulary cards, problem of the day/introductory questions, or exit slips! Use it together or apart—it’s up to you!

You can fill in your own vocabulary (to fit your curriculum), fill in the standard (under the title on the side tab), and customize your own measurements for the practice problems! Write it in or use the “add text” feature on Adobe Acrobat or any PDF reading program.
