This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 21, Unit 5, Grade 8. In this activity, students once again consider different figures with given dimensions, this time comparing their capacity to contain a certain amount of water. The goal is for students to not only apply the correct volume formulas, but to slow down and think about how the dimensions of the figures compare and how those measurements affect the volume of the figures.
