Title: Intro to Cubic Units: Can You Visualize It?

In this learning activity, students will visit a website that introduces the concept of volume and cubic units. The website shows objects with different shapes, but the same cubic units in volume. Students must identify objects that have a specific cubic unit from choices given. They work their way through four levels as the number of cubic units they are asked to identify increases. This lesson aligns with 5th grade Alabama Math Course of Study.

This activity was created as a result of the DLCS COS Resource Development Summit.

a. A cube with side length 1 unit, called a "unit cube," is said to have "one cubic unit" of volume, and can be used to measure volume. [5-MD3a]

b. A solid figure which can be packed without gaps or overlaps using n unit cubes is said to have a volume of n cubic units. [5-MD3b]

Title: Volume StudyJam

This classroom resource provides a video that introduces the volume of solid figures and describes the units used to measure volume. There is a karaoke song with printable lyrics that will help students learn and review the information taught during the video. After utilizing this resource, the students can complete the short quiz to assess their understanding.
