We are studying volume right now in my 5th grade math class, and I wanted something Valentine themed to do on February 14th. The end result was this "Pattern Problems" math coloring activity. There are lots of fun patterns to color, which make for a display that is full of color and pizzazz.
This activity includes 6 problems related to volume. The problems are presented on a patterned heart that the students will color upon completion of solving the problems. The students will use the 'work page' to show how they solved the problems, and then the final answer is written on the patterned heart beside the problem.
Upon completion of solving the problems, students glue the patterned heart to the work page.
All problems are related to volume, so if you are working on the following standard, you might like to use this as part of one of your lessons:
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.
What do the problems consist of? Please do look at the thumbnail and the preview to see the format.
1) Students find the additive/combined volume of two rectangular prisms.
2) Students use the volume formula to find the volume of a shape split into cubic units.
3)Students are given a total volume, and they must decide if the side lengths of the cube are equal to the choices given. They pick one for their answer.
4) Students use l x w x h to find the volume of two rectangular prisms. They write the total value and then color the larger one.
5) Students use the measurements given for length, width, and height to find the base of the rectangular prism.
6) Students are given the measurements of the L and H, along with the volume, and they must find the missing width.
An answer key is included.
This can be used as morning work, a warm- up math activity, a center activity or even homework. Use it in your classroom however you would like.
This Volume Valentine math activity will make a fun bulletin board or hallway display. I plan to hang mine in the hall. :-)
I have tried to be clear in my description as to what the activity includes, but if for any reason you have unanswered questions or don't understand something, PLEASE send me an email before you make your purchase. I can usually get back to you quickly. I want you to be happy with the product. Thank you ahead of time.
In addition, if you ever see a typo or an error on an answer key, I am always appreciative if you can send me a Q and A and let me know what it is before you rate the product, I can usually get it corrected in a jiffy. I always have others proof my work, but we are human and do miss one from time to time. Thank you again.
