Unit 5, Lesson 2# Find the volume of a right rectangular prism by packing with cubic units and counting.

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students continue understanding volume as an attribute of solid figures that is measured in cubic units. They pack rectangular prisms made from nets with unit cubes. This helps them to visualize the layers of cubic units that compose volume. They will reasonably predict the number of cubes required to fill containers and then test their predictions by packing the containers.
