Our Applying Volume in the Real World lesson plan teaches students how to use volume measurements in real-world situations. During this lesson, students are asked to solve practice volume problems that are written as real-world scenarios, demonstrating their understanding of the lesson material. Students are also asked to measure specific items in their home, label the pictures, and find the volume of space each occupies, rounding to the nearest tenth.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to find the volume of right rectangular prisms with fractional edge lengths and then applying these skills to real-world scenarios.
