I love teaching volume.  For 3rd graders in the state of Texas, all we have to do is count the cubes.  Sounds so easy, but some of my angels have trouble counting what they can’t see – especially when trying to count 3 dimensional objects on a 2 dimensional worksheet!  To help them with that problem, I created a PowerPoint that walks them through the steps I use for teaching volume.  The best part is that each layer of the prism is a different color which is great for visual learners (like me!).  I’ve had this volume lesson in my TpT store for awhile but I recently gave it a much needed makeover.  If you happen to have the original file, you’ll want to download the updated version. 

While I was in the mood, I also added to my Find the Volume worksheet file.  So, if you have that one, you’ll want to grab the updated file.

I also created a Volume Mega Bundle that includes all my volume materials.  If you need some activities for your volume unit, go check it out at either TpT or TN.

I’m really excited about teaching volume this year!

  2. Love this.. yes it is SO hard for our third graders to "see" all the layers. Great idea. I pinned it and added it to my wish list!
