Do your students need practice working with partial volume formulas? Give your students conceptual math practice with these fun and engaging Boom Cards and task cards. Your students will practice finding volume by multiplying the area of the base times height while getting immediate feedback. This worksheet alternative is perfect for guided practice, independent practice, and math stations.
Promote conceptual understanding!
Help students understand volume of rectangular prisms with colorful models. These activities are perfect for transitioning students from counting cubes to find the volume to using a volume formula. Students who have a deep understanding of how to find the volume of rectangular prisms do not need to rely on memorizing formulas.
Print or digital? You decide!
Print task cards have been added to give you more flexibility. You get the same great activities either way. This is an ideal activity for math centers or small groups. I assign my class the Boom Cards for independent practice while I use the print task cards to help my struggling students in small groups. Differentiate by selecting the recording sheets that best meet the needs of your students.
