Students will be given a reference sheet of 7 outlined shapes, recording sheet, and a bag of centimeter cubes.
Students will be able to make the connection of area to squares, and then volume to cubes. This will happen by using the squares outlined on the paper and centimeter cubes as a manipulative.
This lesson is designed so that students will notice a pattern of how to calculate the number of cubes as the levels (height) increases.
Area of the base x Height.
Students will then be able to reflect and answer the questions at the bottom of the recording sheet to further their understanding.
