Hands-on Volume Activities – Volume of Rectangular Prisms

$3.00

SKU: 3784067 Category:

Description

Explore volume with hands-on center or station activities!

Allow your students to explore volume concepts with these activities. Students will begin to discover the formula for volume of rectangular prisms on their own. Also, they will create rectangular prisms using snap cubes and use them to determine the volume of each shape.

Since we know that students remember more of what they do than what we tell them, these volume centers were designed to provide students with the hands-on aspect. Allow students to discover the formula for volume of a rectangular prism while the teacher takes the role of “guiding from the sidelines.”

Station 1: Explore the concept of volume by building & sketching rectangular prisms.

Station 2: Build multiple rectangular prisms using a defined number of cubes.

Station 3: Build rectangular prisms with given dimensions and determine the volume.

Includes:

  • 3 volume exploration centers
  • Directions
  • Task cards
  • Recording sheets
  • Whole group guided discovery activity that can be used separately or along with the station activities.

Around 350 cubes are needed to run all of these center activities at the same time. All of the cubes do not need to match. Feel free to use any combination of different brands of snap cubes, counting cubes, centimeter cubes, etc.

After 2 years of using this resource I can say that it dramatically helped my usually low performing students be recognized as in the top 10% of growth in the state. This is a must have for any 5th grade teacher.

I love this resource! It was thorough and fun. The kids had a great time going through the various stations. The activities really helped to reinforce their understanding of probability. It was a hit and I will be using this for many years to come. Thank you!

I had purchased other flip books in the past and found them tricky or time-consuming. Not the case with this one! Very simple to use and will be a friendly tool to communicate important information with parents.

This is the best tool for organized groups! The kids love the timer and I love how it is color-coded for 2 minutes and 1 minute. I use this every day for reading and math centers!
