Measuring Volume with Manipulatives

The volume robot was one way I learned the unit conversions for liquid measurements in school!

You can use small cereal boxes and 1 cubic centimeter cubes to determine the volume, area, perimeter etc, of the box. 5.MD.3. Recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures and understand concepts of volume measurement. 5.MD.4. Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units.

This is an amazing inquiry based science and math project where students teach themselves the formula for volume. They have to figure out how many cubes can fit in the cereal box. This aligns with the Common Core Math Standard 5.MD.4: Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units.

Teaching volume ! Students create skyscrapers using cubes. They then calculate the volume of each solid used to create the building. For the final step students add all the volumes together to find the volume of the entire building.

Measurement Activity

Measurement - Measuring leaves on graph paper would be a good activity to not only measure width and the height, but also to measure area and the perimeter of the leaf. (Or other object.)

Coaching Chronicles: How is the Mass and Volume of Matter Measured?

And with words: Archimedes proved that volume(CYLINDER) = volume(SPHERE) + volume(CONE)

Students must figure out how many unit cubes can fit into this box. 5.MD.3. Recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures and understand concepts of volume measurement.or 5.MD.4. Measure volumes by counting unit cubes, using cubic cm, cubic in, cubic ft, and improvised units.

Graduated cylinders are used to measure volumes accurately. The can be used to calculate the density of an object if its mass is known. Graduated cylinders usually are made from borosilicate glass, though there are plastic cylinders, too. Common sizes are 10, 25, 50, 100, 250, 500, 1000 ml. Choose a cylinder such that the volume to be measured will be in the upper half of the container. This minimizes measurement error.

Use Lego or Duplo blocks as non-standard measurement.. Great addition to dramatic play area... Children can work together to measure various dramatic play props. GOLD 3. Participates cooperatively and constructively in group situations, 14b. Engages in sociodramatic play, 22. Compares and measures

nonstandard measurement idea - measuring beanie babies - oooh good idea!

Experiment to find if the kernels take up more volume than the ear of corn itself

When teaching volume and/or S.A. of spheres, I could simply bring a tape measure to class and all different sized balls so they could have a hands-on experience with the objects that they are calculating.

skin and guts - an awesome way to teach surface area and volume. Some kids have such a hard time with this. Also demonstrates the effect of changing the dimensions.
