I created this foldable for my classroom and it worked so well that I wanted to share it with other teachers. It is a foldable with blanks for the students to fill in as I have learned that they don't really remember the formulas until they write them several times. By the time my students finished filling in the boxes, they had realized that V=Bh, and all they had to know was to identify the base shape and find its area B. They were also able to identify that cones and pyramids are 1/3 of the Volume of a Cylinder or Prism with the same BASE and HEIGHT. I don't give the students the equations for all of the boxes, I make them do at least 2 of them for homework...to promote synthesis.
There are plenty of foldables and reference sheets out there that GIVE the students the information, but I have found that when they write it themselves and it includes DISCOVERY, they retain the information better.
