Product Description
In Exploring Volume, the students get the opportunity to predict the volume of various sized containers in cubic centimeters before then using their own strategies (along with cubic centimeters) to determine the actual volume!

Base Ten blocks work fabulously with this activity, as students can make logical choices to use rods or flats versus using single units to discover the volume, based on the size of their box. I actually asked the children to bring in different boxes from home to be used for this activity. I made sure there were small boxes (such as toothpick or paperclip boxes), medium boxes (such as toothpaste or Poptart boxes), and larger boxes (such as Cheez It or cereal boxes) to aid in differentiating this activity for students.

The students enjoyed predicting and discovering just how many cubic centimeters filled up the different boxes that they see everyday!
