Product Description
In the following lab, students enjoy a "hands-on" activity to learn the reasoning behind the formulas used in calculating for volume in two solids, the pyramid and the prism.

* Students draw the nets on poster board for a pyramid and a prism, given precise measurements.

* Students carefully cut the nets out and fold according to directions.

* Students use unpopped popcorn, uncooked rice, or dried beans to fill their solids.

* Students compare the volume of a pyramid and a prism with the same base and height.

* Students Students use their results to write a formula for the volume of a pyramid relative to the formula for the volume of a prism.

* This activity takes approximately 30-45 minutes.

* This activity is aligned with CCSS

* Following the activity, students fully understand that the volume of a pyramid is one third the volume of a prism with the same base and the same height.

Please enjoy!
