Students can build these figures using unit cubes to reveal the "hidden" blocks. Great activity for centers or collaborative partner learning!
Recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures and understand concepts of volume measurement MCC5.MD.3
a. A cube with side length 1 unit, called a “unit cube,” is said to have “one cubic unit” of volume, andcan be used to measure volume MCC5.MD.3a
b. A solid figure which can be packed without gaps or overlaps using n unit cubes is said to have a volume of n cubic units MCC5.MD.3b
Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft., and improvised units MCC5.MD.4
