Students measure the perimeter and area of their polygons. In this geometry lesson, students calculate the volume and area using the correct tools. They calculate the time and temperature and the perimeter and side lengths of triangles.
In this geometry activity, high schoolers solve for the volume of various prisms including cylinders. There are 11 questions and several pages of examples for each problem type.
Activate prior knowledge by first reviewing different things and ways we measure things. Then, discuss what it means to measure volume. Learners will be introduced to units of volume and key vocabulary. The highly visual nature of the video will assist the class in understanding the units and tools used in determining volume.
Measuring volume can be a mystery for 5th graders, but this hands-on activity gives the gift of discovery. The volume of simple rectangular solids and irregular shapes are calculated through various methods including displacing liquid in graduated cylinders. The final steps in the procedure encourage the development of new ways to measure area or volume outside of the traditional algorithm. 
Tenth graders investigate the volume of a cylinder.  In this geometry lesson, 10th graders create three-dimensional cylinders and use a ruler to determine the dimensions.  The lesson progresses to the use of the formula to find the volume and allows students to analyze how changing the radius and height of a cylinder affect this volume.
Students create a still life drawing creating volume using oil pastels. Given a specific set of directions and materials, a sphere is created using proper technique to convey volume. After the drawing is completed, students write a one-page paper analyzing the process of creating their drawing.
Fourth graders calculate volume. In this volume lesson, 4th graders calculate, estimate, and compare units of volume in English and metric systems.
Finding the volume of a cylinder entails using two formulas: the formula for the area of a circle and the formula for volume. The area of the given circle must be solved because that value is used in the formula for volume. Watch this video as the instructor demonstrates how to find the volume of a cylinder.
Fourth graders are introduced to the measures perimeter, area and volume. They read contexts using the terms and begin to develop meaning for each measure. Additional contexts are presented and the definition of each measure is clarified.
Hungry learners perform a number of popcorn investigations. They investigate the volume of popcorn kernels before and after popping. They use both standard and non-standard units of measurement to measure the kernels. 
In this geometry activity, students solve for the volume or surface area of cones and cylinders given the radius, diameter, or height. There are 25 questions.
Making the transition from two-dimensional shapes to three-dimensional solids can be difficult for many geometry students. This comprehensive lesson starts with writing and graphing linear equations to define a bounded region and calculating the areas and perimeters of the space. Using this as a base, the lesson then has learners revolve these regions to create solid figures and calculate the resulting volume. A real-world example using a bowling ball and visualization software caps off this in-depth instruction.
For this volume worksheet, students take notes on the various ways to measure volume depending on if the substance is liquid, an irregular shaped solid, or a regular shaped solid.
Learners explore the relationship between mass, volume and density. They use model boats to discover how changing mass and volume affect density. This is a very engaging lesson which provides great demonstrations and hands-on activities.
In this chemistry worksheet, students use the combined gas law to complete 9 short answer questions in which they calculate new volumes, .original pressures, and change in temperatures.
In this Boyle's Law worksheet, learners investigate the relationship between the pressure and the volume of a gas at constant temperature. They use a syringe and a pressure gauge attached to a computer to collect their data. They create a graph that shows the relationship between pressure and volume. Students complete a data table, answer 3 post lab questions and summarize Boyle's Law.
See how geometry and exponents relate and show your learners how to find area and volume. The video shares the idea of why we use exponents with area and volume and does an example of each. Examples do not evaluate exponents, but that can be done after showing this third video in a series of five.  
Fifth graders identify the volume of snow as greater than the volume of ice. They calculate the volume ratio of snow: water. They discuss the properties of snow and liquid water that cause changes in volume and understand that 1 mililiter of water weighs 1 gram.
Students explore measurements.  In this geometry lesson, students investigate the relationship between area, volume and weight.  Students practice unit conversion within the context of a hands-on application.  Students practice using a ruler and use the collected data to make predictions. 
Students design a candy container that contains a specific amount of candy. They demonstrate how an engineering problem can be solved with math and that there are multiple answers to the problem. They compute volume of spheres.
