This lesson was designed to teach volume within the confines of an engaging, relatable scenario. As it is an introduction into the most basic of volume formulae, the lesson is structured to be broadly accessible. Future lessons or problems involving the volume of right, rectangular prisms may necessitate more focused bands of differentiation, especially on the advanced end. One option is choosing to arrange student groups and pairings by diversifying skill levels. Future lessons on this concept might lend themselves better to homogeneous skill set groupings. CCSS: 6.G.2 , 7.G.6

### Standards

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.

Thank you for providing this lesson. I was wondering if there is an answer key to the worksheets? I do not remember seeing one, or am I overlooking it?
