Volume - with NEW Georgia Math Standards for 5th Grade
Teach your students how to successfully measure volume using this comprehensive printable resource pack (including a second version of the file that has been modified to align with the NEW Georgia Math Standards for 5th Grade).
***This resource has been updated to include a second file that contains ONLY the resources that align specifically with the NEW Georgia Mathematics Standards.*** You can still pull resources from the file that uses the Common Core standards to use as enrichment, intervention, or to preview 6th grade standards (volume of composite figures).
There are 5 mini-lessons for finding volume by counting cubes, packing right rectangular prisms with unit cubes, using two formulae for calculating the volume of right rectangular prisms, finding the missing dimension of a rectangular prism, and finding the volume of composite figures.
This resource is complete, concise, and easy to follow with a clear format. It is low-prep and easy to assign to a sub. If your students are struggling with volume, this resource is for you.
Common Core Standards (CCSS) and Georgia Standards of Excellence (GSE): 5.MD.3, 5.MD.3a, 5.MD.3b, 5.MD.4, 5.MD.5, 5.MD.5a, 5.MD.5b, 5.MD.5c
NEW Georgia Mathematics Standards: 5.GSR.8, 5.GSR.8.3, 5.GSR.8.4, G.MP.1-8
GSR - Geometric & Spatial Reasoning
MP - Mathematical Practices
Introduce each skill with the detailed set of notes and sample problems. I suggest doing this in a whole group setting and pulling the PDF up on a Smartboard so students can annotate over the models.
Gradually release students to practice independently using the practice pages. Check for understanding and mastery after teaching each skill using the exit tickets.
When all skills have been taught, assess with the final quiz when you feel students are ready.
