3-D Measurement Project
Go beyond flakes and bran and provide this fun and tasty activity that lets learners design and create their own cereal box. It's all about the box when your middle schoolers provide directions and a solution on how to calculate the surface area and volume where the usual breakfast activity is located on the back.

When the Snow is as High as an Elephant
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.
6th - 11th Math
Geometry and Measurement
Scholars explore relationships between units of measure and objects to be measured. They develop an understanding of length, area, and volume. Finally, students identify and develop their spatial sense and apply appropriate techniques, tools, and formulas to determine measurements.

Find the Volume of a Rectangular Prism by Filling it with Unit Cubes
Show your learners how to find the volume of a fish tank by filling it with unit cubes. The first video in a series of three, offers a visual explanation of how to calculate the volume of a rectangular prism by adding layers of unit cubes. It explains steps needed to calculate each layer and how that relates to overall volume formula.
