This product will have your students out of their seats, working together, and showing their creativity to create a 3D city/village. Volumeville has students tasked with creating a community with a specific total volume. They will be challenged to use nets to create both rectangular prisms as well as composite rectangular prisms to build their city.
Standards addressed: 5.MD.4, 5.MD.5a, 5.MD.5b, 5.MD.5c
In addition to building a 3D city, students will create a key in which they will illustrate each building from their city along with its length, width, height, and volume so that they can continue to display their knowledge of calculating volume.
Google Classroom option: if your school is 1:1 with technology, you can use the Google Classroom version of this product. You can assign student directions with the Google doc provided as well as grade all projects with the digital project rubric. This rubric will be assigned to all students so that all you have to do is fill in the values. It’s even formatted to total up all the points while you enter them! Save yourself some time!
Your students will be actively engaged as they work together to meet the challenge of making their project exactly 2,000 cubic cm and get even more experience using technology if they use the Google version of it to create a digital key.
