Unit 5 Area and Geometric Measurement: Volume Grade 5 Math 

Description: Students will find the volume of a
rectangular prism by counting unit cubes.
Students will practice measuring volume using cubic centimeters, cubic
inches, cubic feet, and other units.
Work will also involve applying the formulas V = l x w x h and V = b x
h. Students will select appropriate units,
strategies, and tools for solving real word problems involving estimating and
measuring volume. 

Standards:


Enduring Understandings: ·
Volume
is represented in cubic units. ·
Volume
can be expressed in both customary and metric units. ·
A
square unit could have fractional lengths.
As long as the lengths of a square unit are the same, it is still
considered a square unit. 
Essential Questions: ·
