Big Ideas: Solids can have the same volume if they are composed of the same number of cubic units. This lesson builds on students’ previous work with finding the volume of rectangular prisms by counting the cubes. In this task, students will use isometric paper and manipulative cubes to design pet houses that use the same number of cubic units. Comparing volume will give them the experience needed to recognize that solids with the same volume can be represented in different ways. Vocabulary: volume, rectangular prism, solid, isometric paper Special Materials: isometric paper manipulative cubes (base ten blocks or cm cubes)
