These 28 Volume Word Problem Task Cards are meant to help your students think more deeply about volume and apply what they know about the formula to real-life situations.
These cards are great to use for a game of Scoot, homework, centers, warm-ups, enrichment, examples in language journals/notes, whole group on an interactive whiteboard/projector, or just for a fun learning activity! Copy your cards, laminate them, cut them out, and keep them for years to come! Then, just print a copy of the student answer sheet for each child in your class and your students are all set to go!
Relate volume to the operations of multiplication and addition and solve real world and mathematical problems involving volume.
Apply the formulas V = l × w × h and V = b × h for rectangular prisms to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with whole-number edge lengths in the context of solving real world and mathematical problems.
Recognize volume as additive. Find volumes of solid figures composed of two non-overlapping right rectangular prisms by adding the volumes of the non-overlapping parts, applying this technique to solve real world problems.
