Measurement: 2D and 3D
Students solve volume problems. In this geometry lesson, the class watches a video about clean water (link provided) and individuals compare the volume of different prisms, including an actual drinking glass. Extension activities include research on organizations that provide safe drinking water and the volume of the containers they use.

How many edges do I need to cut in order to open a cube?
Students problem solve to open a cube to create different shapes. In this problem solving lesson plan, students are given a cube and the shapes to open it up to, and they have to cut the cube open to make certain shapes. This gives them a better understanding of 3 dimensional shapes.

TE Activity: Determining Densities
Young scholars determine how to determine the density of an object or material that has a simple geometric shape. They apply the method for determining density to a more complex geometric shape. They complete an experiment with items that sink or float in water, develop a scatter plot, and determine densities using the graph.
