5th Grade Math Measurement: Volume Common Core Enrichment Project Menu 3rd 9 Weeks Name ________________________________________ Date __________________________________ Create a poster teaching others to measure rectangular prisms using the V= L x W x H. On the poster include at least five examples of rectangular prisms and directions showing how to measure them. Using this cube template: Create three cubes with three different volume measurements: 125 cubic inches, 64 cubic inches and 1000 cubic inches. Label and identify the volume on each cube Find the volume of your classroom, a nearby closet in or near your classroom, and the closest restroom in your building. Determine what measuring tools you will need. You will have to use your creativity to measure the height of each area. Create a table or graph displaying your results Create a short book called, "Anything and Everything A 5th Grader Needs To Know About Volume." In the book include reasons why volume is important, the definition of volume, how to measure volume in real life and how to measure volume in two dimensional figures. Include illustrations. Using exactly 100 Legos, build five different containers with different volume capacities. Use a type of cubic unit measurement to determine their volume. 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. Compose a humorous rhyming poem about volume. The poem should have at least five stanzas and include ten facts about volume. Create a fifteen question quiz for your classmates testing their knowledge of “volume”. You may use drawings, models or illustrations to test your classmates. The questions can be in any form as long as they review their “volume skills”. Prepare an answer key for your teacher. Volume can be measured in cubic units by determining how 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.
