Find the volume of a right rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths by packing it with unit cubes of the appropriate unit fraction edge lengths, and show that the volume is the same as would be found by multiplying the edge lengths of the prism. Apply the formulas ? = ??ℎ and ? = ?ℎ to find volumes of right rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.
Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, volume and surface area of two- and three-dimensional objects composed of triangles, quadrilaterals, polygons, cubes, and right prisms.

I think this would definitely work well in alignment with the sixth grade geometry standards, however, it would also be a nice review activity in the seventh grade classroom.
