5th grade math - volume

I love using keynote as a collaboration work book. This workbook model can be used for any math standard.

In this lesson I have students...

  1. Start with a shape hunt and take a photo of 3 different rectangular prisms around our school.
  2. Use the measure app to find the length width and height of a rectangular prism and mark them up on the photo.
  3. Next have students trade their IPADS with another student to solve the problem they posed with their photos on slides 1-3. I remind them they can use audio drawing or typing to express the volume of the problem.
  4. When students receive their IPAD back they need to check their partners work.
  5. Next students can work on slide 4 to challenge themselves. They will create a volume word problem with realistic dimensions and solve.
  6. As an extension students can create a screen recording explaining their work on slide 4. I show students live video in keynote so they can make their explanation personal and empower their inner youtuber.
