Area, Perimeter and Volume - Volume investigation
Lesson based on students investigating the volume of a cylindrical prism - a Frisbee. How much water can you fit in a Frisbee? Get students to predict, feed in certain facts based on what students know they need to calculate volume, get them to calculate then demonstrate. Very able year 8 group loved and hated it (for the right reasons).
