#### Rubik's Cube is 40 years old http://www.examiner.com/article/rubik-s-cube-one-of-the-world-s-best-selling-toy-is-40-years-old

#### I have fond memories of playing with a Rubik's Cube when I was a kid. I even still have it! Thankfully, I also have the book of instructions, inside the back cover of which my father wrote the sequence for solving the darn thing. Buahahaha!!

#### Toy Throwback of the Day: Rubik Cube! Possibly the most frustrating toy of all time? Hungarian inventor Ernö Rubik created his first 3-D color-coded puzzle cube in the mid-1970s, but it wasn’t until the following decade that Rubik became a household name. After Ideal imported the toy to the U.S. in 1980, it skyrocketed in popularity, selling millions of units. Did YOU (or your kids) ever have a Rubik Cube?

#### Measure the nutcrackers using unifix cubes. How many unifix cubes tall is the nutcracker? (Could use ANYTHING!)

#### Measuring with unifix cubes! Would love to use these cubes as a unit of measurement for other objects

#### Measure the nutcrackers using unifix cubes. How many unifix cubes tall is the nutcracker? Could make pictures of anything dealing with winter.

#### Measure the nutcrackers using unifix cubes. How many unifix cubes tall is the nutcracker? This can be easily adapted to fit any topic of study or seasonal holiday.

#### Instead of nutcrackers, have stacks of turtles from Yertle the Turtle. Have students measure the different stacks and write which one is big, bigger, and biggest.

#### MEASUREMENT, REASONING AND PROOF. Children measure the diffrent size of nutcrackers using unifix cubes. Unifix cubes are appropriate tool to measure. Children develop common referencts for measures to make comparisons.

#### Mrs. Bremer's Kindergarten: math work stations. Adapt to help small group understand nutcracker 1 is 3 times bigger than Nutcracker __

#### Measure the nutcrackers using unifix cubes. How many unifix cubes tall is the nutcracker? (Could use ANYTHING!)

#### Measurement and Data: Identifies attributes of objects such as length and width and uses correct vocabulary such as small, big, short, tall, etc. Students will use cubes to measure nutcrackers of various heights, and indicate their height in cubes. They may then arrange them in order from shortest to tallest or tallest to shortest. If using only three they would use the terms short, medium, and tall.

#### TEKS: 5.6(A-B). Audience: Fifth Grade Behavior: Students will understand the concept of volume. Condition: Students will use centimeter cubes to measure the dimensions of different, larger cubes and rectangular prisms. This activity could be used to help students understand the concept of volume and how to find the volume of different cubes and rectangular prisms.

#### 5.MD.3. 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.

#### This is a great way for children to better understand the volume of containers. Filling up the cereal box with the unit blocks is a perfect example. 5.MD.3 recognize volume as an attribute of solid figures and understand the concepts of volume measurement.

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.
