This unit explores the concept of volume. Students will count cubic units to find volume, and then apply the formula for the volume of a rectangular prism. Then they will investigate some volume patterns and solve application problems involving volume. Students should use real materials, such as math link cubes, along with the smartboard lesson to see applications involving 3 dimensional figures. After students have a basic understanding of volume, provide the slides with practice problems in a real world context so students will be more likely to visualize the concept. Also, there is a link to a fun volume song your students will love!
