Lesson Plan Description
This 1 hour math lesson addresses Measurement & Data: Volume (5.MD.5). This lesson includes: key geometric sold vocabulary, helpful student notes for reference, guided and independent practice of concepts, and an exit slip as an optional assessment component. Students will be able to identify the elements of a right rectangular prism: vertex, edge, base, face. They will also apply their multiplication and addition skills to find the volume of a right rectangular prism with whole-number edge lengths. The lesson begins with review and note taking for reference, then moves into partner or independent practice, and concludes with a short exit slip to check for understanding.
