It's Called the Voluuuuume!


This week we are continuing our geometry unit, by learning a thing or two about VOLUME!

First, here is a mini-lesson on finding VOLUME.

To summarize, please enjoy this happy video (and turn up your speakers).

I'm sorry if you sing this song for the rest of your life.

Don't you forget the 3...

make sure it's cubic units!

 9 + 9 + 9 = 27
9 x 3 = 27
3 x 3 x 3 = 27


When counting cubic units to find volume,
don't forget the hidden cubes!

Here's the formula to file away in one of your brain folders:

Let's practice...

Just grab an object shaped like a rectangular prism and a ruler!

Click here for a cool flipbook to help you remember the formula for VOLUME. Make sure you add them to your math spiral and that your notebook is up to date.

This is what the flipbook will look like once it's glued in...

...and here are the notebook pages!
