In this lesson, students learn about volume and surface area. The first part of the lesson incorporates manipulatives (cubic inches) so that students learn in a hands-on manner. The second part of the lesson incorporates Core 6 strategies of contrasting the two concepts. The last part of the lesson focuses on using formulas and how the formulas are different for volume and surface area (for rectangular prisms and cubes). A double-sided worksheet is included so that students can practice finding both volume and surface area of rectangular prisms and cubes. This worksheet is called "Using Formulas to Find Surface Area and Volume." If you do not want to buy the full lesson, you can simply purchase this worksheet in my store.
