I created this Triangler Puzzle game for my common core math stations.The focus is on volume of rectangular prisms, including some fractional edge lengths.
It is great for stations as it can be easily differentiated. For a lower level group, exclude the bottom row of the puzzle. I prepare both versions so that I can swap them out as groups are rotating. Laminate the puzzle page and cut out the puzzle pieces. The puzzle is correct as it is, so print a copy to keep as your key. I laminate the included student directions to keep at the station.
My station rotations are in groups of four. I like to use this as a group station. That is, when the group gets to this station, they all work together to assemble the puzzle. The discussions that arise are awesome. You could also have the students work individually or in partner pairs. You would just need to print multiple versions of the puzzle. Doing so on different colored sheets of paper will make it easy to keep in order. I prefer cardstock for the weight and feel, but plain copy paper works, too.

CCSS.Math.Content.6.G.A.2 Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by packing it with unit cubes of the appropriate unit fraction edge lengths, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths of the prism. Apply the formulas V = l w h and V = b h to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
