## Hay Bale Farmer

Compare the volume of different solid figures. The class uses hay bales to calculate and compare the volume of cylinders and rectangular prisms. If you have farmers in your class, excellent! They can apply prior knowledge to enrich learning. If you don't, so much the better; urban learners can connect to food production and rural life. Or you can substitute soda cans and juice boxes for the shapes. Activity sheet is attached via a link; solutions are included in the resource.
