Unit 5, Lesson 1# Explore volume by building with and counting unit cubes.

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students begin understanding volume as an attribute of solid figures that is measured in cubic units. They use unit cubes to build 3-dimensional shapes, including right rectangular prisms, and count them to find the volume. By developing a systematic approach to counting the unit cubes, they make connections between area and volume.
