Student objectives (outcomes):
Students will be able to:

Define volume

Describe the components of the Volume formula and what each one means.

Find the volume of a rectangular prism

Stage 2 Assessment Evidence
Performance Task(s):
Other Evidence:

The teacher will play a video

Teacher will observe the students as they
are working with a partner to answer
v=E8tuMaDxgJM about volume to
introduce the concept to the class.

The teacher will assess understanding

through grading the worksheet.

The students will be given a worksheet

that will work as a group using the Elmo
for the students to find the volume of
rectangular prisms.

The students will use the IPad/ Laptops,

while with a partner, to work on the
volume worksheet on-line.

ELL /special needs students will be given

an aide or calculator to work the

Stage 3 Learning Plan

Learning Activities:
Begin with asking the students what volume is.
Discuss the answer with the class that volume is the amount of space an object occupies.
Show the students what a rectangular prism is

Ask the students what length, width, and height is.

Give the definition of each: The length is how long the sides are, the width is how wide the
shape is, and the height is how tall the shape is.
Write the formula for finding the Volume on the board: V=L x w x h
Write an example on the board and label each side
Demonstrate how to plug the numbers in the formula.
Pass out the work sheet to the class
Work each problem together as a group using the Elmo.
After finishing the worksheet, pair the students together and assign them an IPad/ laptop
to use
Give the directions on the worksheet
When finished the students will submit the worksheet in.
The students will work hands on activity to measure the volume of the rectangular prism.
The teacher will pass out a measuring cup, rectangular prism, and ruler to each table.
The students will measure each side of the rectangular prism and then pour water into the
prism to measure the volume.
