Our Volume 1 lesson plan introduces students to the concept of volume in regards to cubes, rectangular solids, and square pyramids. During this lesson, students are asked to measure the classroom and determine the room’s volume in order to ground their understanding of this lesson in the real world. Students are also asked to individually complete practice problems in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify and use the formulas for the volume of cubes, rectangular solids, and square pyramids.
