Volume Lab

How can we find volume if it a shape isn't easy to measure? Investigate methods for determining this as the volume of regular and irregular objects is explored in several stations. Learners discover that when the standard formula for volume won't work, water displacement is an equally reliable measurement tool. The term "meniscus" is defined, and a reflection wraps the lesson up.
