Specific Objectives to Meet Goals:

Students will be able to find the volume of rectangular prisms.

Ohio Learning Standard (General Objectives) Grade 5:

Critical Area 3: Developing understanding of volume
Measurement and Data:
Geometric Measurement: understand concepts of volume and relate volume to
multiplication and addition. (5.MD.3, 5.MD.4, 5MD.5)

Motivational Techniques:
A fun video will be shown at the beginning of class to engage students in the lesson. It is a song
that explains how to find the volume of rectangular prisms.

Materials Needed:
Whiteboard, markers, blocks for modeling rectangular prisms, scissors, glue, worksheets,
projector, computer

Procedure for the Lesson:

-Students enter classroom and will watch video about finding the volume of rectangular prisms
(5 minutes).
-Students will then break up into three groups to complete worksheets.
-At each station, they will be completing different activities involving volume (15-20 minutes
-The first station, they will be modeling volume using blocks and finding the volume of the
rectangular prisms they create.
-The second and third stations they will complete two different worksheets in which they have to
multiply the length by the width and height to find the volume of the rectangular prisms.

Academic Language:
Volume, cubic units, rectangular prism

Assessment Methods:
Evaluate student’s shown work on the worksheet. Did they understand how to count the cubic
units in order to find the volume? Did they understand how to find the volume by using the
formula V=lwh?

Evaluation of Field Experience Student’s Performance:

The first class was difficult to keep on track and engaged in the activities. Many students seemed
confused about the topic and required one-on-one help to complete the activities. I walked
around and sat and talked through the activities with as many students as I could to try and help
them understand. I think with this first class, I should’ve developed a more structured lesson, as
they seemed to get off topic very easily. Also, I think many of them learn better in small groups
or even one-on-one activities with a teacher to help guide them, so that also could’ve been
helpful to integrate into the lesson. Next time, I would break them up into groups based on how
well they understand the topic, and I would let them work on activities in those groups. I would
help the group that I thought needed it the most. The class is very large and difficult to control,
but all of the students completed all of the activities even with the difficulty I had keeping them
on track. The second class, however, did very well with this lesson. They listened to what I said,
asked questions, and were very engaged. They really enjoyed working with the blocks, even
though they were confused, at first, how to build the prisms. I think these activities helped them
visualize volume and understand what it is and what it actually measures.
