Popcorn, Anyone?

Pupils explore the concept of dimension and its affect on overall volume. They construct rectangular prisms out of paper, then fill their prisms with popcorn. By transferring the same amount of popcorn to various prisms, they are able to compare the different sizes. This makes the concept of volume not only visual for your class, but also quite tasty!
