I'm making it my mission to take some of the most irrelevant, abstract concepts for students, and turning them into FUN color-by-number activities. Why should these fun coloring activities stop once kids leave elementary school? Watch your students actually care about their answers as they quietly work to color each picture correctly. You can assess their progress quickly, just by glancing to see if they colored their pictures correctly.
The directions for students are as follows: Complete the problems in each row. Circle the correct answer. Match the problem numbers with the color you circled to create a colorful picture. For example, if you get the answer 8 in. for problem #3, you should use black to color all of the sections labeled with a 3. If you get the answer 6 in., you should use red to color all the sections labeled with a 3.
These problems are all for rectangular prisms. Some questions involve fractional edge lengths. For 5th grade volume, including whole numbers only and unit cubes, click here
