The 5th graders have been working hard studying volume of rectangular prisms.

The 5th graders have been working hard studying the volume of rectangular prisms. After collecting boxes, they worked together to brainstorm an animal they wanted to create. First, they calculated the volume of each body party and then totaled them up! Next, they assembled their animals, wrapped them with paper, and decorated them with very creative final touches. We are so proud of all their hard work and how each group worked successfully as a team!
