6.1.17 Digital Applet: Building with 32 Snap Cubes

This is an assignable version of the digital applet that goes with Grade 6, Unit 1, Lesson 17: Squares and Cubes.

Assign this activity to students so that they can explore how the volume of a rectangular prism can be calculated in two different ways: by counting unit cubes that can be packed into the prism, and by multiplying the edge lengths of the prism.
