Product Description
Students use isometric dot paper to draw 3-D buildings and design their own cube cities. This project is a great culmination to any study in volume.

Contents:
1. Teaching Notes

2. Student Sheets:
*Learn to Draw Cubes and Rectangular Prisms
*Draw Rectangular Prisms practice sheet
*Design a Mini Metropolis instruction sheet
*Metropolis Information Sheet, a table to collect information on volume and cost (3 options are included so teachers can select the one that best fits their students' needs: cubic cm, cubic units, blank for differentiation)
*Total Volume and Cost calculation sheet

3. Answer Keys (2), as applicable (many answers will vary)

4. Photos of Student Work

(Note: isometric dot paper is not included because this can be downloaded for free on the internet)

This project takes several days to complete. My students spent about 3 hours of in-class time; some took the projects home to complete.

The assignment requires students to:

1. draw some buildings with given dimensions, calculating volume
2. draw some buildings with a given volume, calculating dimensions
3. invent some buildings, calculating dimensions & volume

See the comments from users on how this activity might be used as a performance assessment for Common Core volume standards in grade 5. This could also be used as a STEM lesson.

My students love this project and it's a great way to apply what they've learned about volume! Enjoy!
