Volume Investigation

Volume Investigation

A practical volume investigation for KS2/KS3 pupils This lesson was used for an observation after the children had spent a week learning about volume. The children construct boxes and investigate volume by cutting different sized squares from the corner of a grid to find out which dimensions give the greatest volume.
