Product Description
These Lesson Plans explain that volume is an attribute of solid figures or three-dimensional shapes. Volume is a measurement of how much space a solid figure occupies or "takes up." Volume can be measured by finding a figure's capacity, or how much of either a liquid or a solid the figure can hold.

In these Lesson Plans students will:

- Learn the difference between plane (two-dimensional) and solid (three-dimensional figures).

- Locate and describe three-dimensional figures around the classroom.

- Review how to find the area of plane figures; such as rectangles.

- Find the volume of a rectangular prism (or box) by filling it with various centimeter and inch cubes.

- Explore the commutative and associative properties of multiplication.

- Develop the two formulas to find volume. These two formulas are:
V = b x h and V = l x w x h.

- Understand that the volume of a larger figure can be found by adding together the volume of smaller parts of the figure (volume as additive).

- Solve real world problems involving volume.

- Continue to practice by creating their own word problems involving volume.
