#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will learn how to calculate the volumes of cubes and cuboids.

A cube has 6 identical square faces.

The volume is how much room it takes up inside!

To find it we multiply the width and height by the depth.

In this case, that is 4 x 4 x 4

The volume = 64 cm3

A cuboid has 6 rectangular faces.

We find the volume the same way we find the volume of the cube.

We multiply the width and height by the depth.

In this case, that is  7 x 5 x 2

The volume = 70 cm3

Let's do some questions!
