Turn Up the 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.
