Volume of Prisms by Unit Cubes, predict and check

Children's Measurement Project

This activity was generated by the Children's Measurement Project, with funding support from the National Science Foundation, DRL 1222944. Special thanks go to Theodore Rupnow for coding this activity (2014). The activity has been helpful for working with elementary students, aged 8 to 10 years, as they learn about measuring volume and about using the formula for finding the volume of a prism.
