Definitions: cones, cylinders, spheres, rectangular prism, value of Pi, circumference, radius, diameter, volume, length, height, width, base

Review with student(s) the different objects you have collected (one of each cone, cylinder, sphere, and rectangular prism). Once the student is fully able to identify all the objects choose one item. Starting with the cylinder ask the student to tell you what they know acount the (can of soup, tomatoes etc). They should be able to identify the base and the sides which represent height. Have the student measure the base and the height recording their answers in the students media of choice.

Together, using the appropriate formula, calculate the volume of the cylinder. Using the Volume Task Worksheet have the student explain how they determined the volume. Challenge the student to explain why they are correct.

If the student is confident they can move on to the next object and calculate the volume of the remaining items.

If further help is needed ask guiding questions such as: What do you know about the object? What can you measure? How does this help in calculating volume?

The Volume Task Worksheet will act as your assessment and should be completed with time permitting. Encourage the student to answer in complete sentences.
