### Target 1​

###### Lesson Type:

New

Measurment

:

Techniques and Formulas

Explore the concept of volume using blocks.

###### 1:

Understand that volume is a measurement of how much space a 3D object is taking up.

###### 2:

Understand that the same number of blocks can be arranged in numerous ways (setting the foundation that different figures can have the same volume even if they look different).

2nd

###### Vocabulary:

Area, Volume, Rectangular, Long, Wide, High/Tall (length, width, height)

Activities:

We did a quick review of area - the number of squares you can fit on top of a surface. Then we learned about volume - the space a 3D object takes up (how many cubes fit inside). Students explored organizing a set number of cubes into different rectangular arrangements. For example, 12 cubes might be arranged as 3 cubes long, 2 cubes wide, and 2 cubes high or 6 cubes long, 2 cubes wide, and 1cubes high. This helped students to visualize the idea that shapes can have the same volume, but be arranged in a different way.

## Absent Students:

### Target 2

:

###### 1:

Define an equal sign as a symbol which shows that the quantity on both sides are the same.

###### 2:

Understand that an equal sign can link an equation to its solution or that it can link two equations together.

2nd

###### Vocabulary:

Equations, Balance, Equal

Activities:

Students reviewed balancing equations to demonstrate their understanding that the equal sign connects to equations and that both sides are equal to one another. We used a scale to help identify the amount to add or subtract so that both sides were equal or balanced.
