An Exploration of Volume

Ok ok....So it's April and I taught volume almost a month ago. Things can get pretty hectic this time of year, what with preparing for the OAA and making sure my kids are in tip top shape to show what they know! Now that we're on Spring Break, I can finally sit back and reflect on what we've been learning and where we need to go after this. I truly feel that math should be a hands-on experience for kids of all ages. It shouldn't stop in 3rd grade. All too often, we get caught up in making…

Write the dimensions of pantry items on sticky notes. Have kids measure and stick the dimensions to the right objects! This is a great way to learn depth, width, and height/length! I would have them stick them on their best guesses first! Math Strategies, Math Resources, Math Activities, Math Games, Maths 3e, Fifth Grade Math, Sixth Grade, Grade 2, Math Measurement

Measuring 3 Dimensions

I am still under the delusion that summer should be just as carefree as it was when I was a kid. As a good friend pointed out to me, once you have kids, summer is crazy busy. This activity was a great learning opportunity that I threw together in 10 minutes – perfect for a busy day of summer camp and baseball practice. I grabbed a handful of items from our pantry with straight sides. I measured the width, depth, and height (or length) of each and noted the dimensions on a post-it note – one…

Math Journal Sundays

Good SUNDAY Morning! I've got a great little foldable to share with you today. I had hoped to have a few to show you today, but because I was down and out with the flu and Thursday and Friday, I only have the one. We had our unit test on Monday, so I started a new Geometry / Measurement unit on Tuesday. I had originally hoped that I would be able to finish the unit in two weeks (so I could finish before March Break), but it looks as though I'll need another week after March Break (and so the…

Candy Bar Volume

I thought I would share this idea my friend and colleague came up with. She he had the idea to use candy bars to teach students volume. First, I read the book Counting on Frank by Rod Clement. If you've never read this book, it's really cute. The little boy likes finding the volume of things using unusual items. For example, he finds it would take 10 whales to fill his entire house. I talk about when you find volume you have add the label cubed, so I stopped through out the book and had the…

Best Volume Activity Ever!

Now I know by saying "best volume activity ever" you might be thinking, "No, how could it be?" but seriously for my Grade 3/4 class, this is the best activity I have found. When you teach younger children, you spend a lot of time working on informal units with volume - making cylinders and filling them with blocks, filling containers with sand or rice and trying to figure out which container holds the most. But for older children I had always moved towards some worksheets, which I am not a…
