Create a poster teaching
others to measure
rectangular prisms using
the V= L x W x H. On the
poster include at least five

prisms and directions
showing how to measure
Using this cube template:
Create three cubes with three
different volume measurements:
125 cubic inches, 64 cubic inches

Find the volume of your
classroom, a nearby closet in or

If you don't have enough Legos
to complete this project for a full
display of all five containers, take
a digital picture and glue photos
of your five Lego containers to a
poster displaying their volume.

many cubic units would fill the
container. Find ten random
containers in your classroom and
cubic squares from your teacher.
If your teacher can't provide you
with cubic unit squares, choose
an improvised cubic unit such as
mini marshmallows or dice to
find their volume. Create a
poster with illustrations of each
container that you used and
write their measured volume
next to the container.
Find ten different books or
textbooks in your classroom.
Measure the volume of each
book using the formula: V=L x W
x H. Create a table or graph to
display the volume of each book.
Include the title of the book on
your table or graph.
