1) What is a unit measurement?
2) What is an area?
3) How do we find an area?
4) What is a rectangular prism?
5) How do we find all the blocks in a rectangular prism?
6) How can the formula for area help us find the formula of volume?
Level 1) Sandboxes
Students will enter the single player world and will see three sand boxes and three piles of sand. Students will match the numbers of sand in a pile to the area of the sandbox. Once all three sandboxes are filled the door will open and the player will go level 2.
Level 1 Help Video
Level 2) Volume Maze
Students will enter the maze where they will find clues on how to derive the formula for volume. They also will find rectangular prisms form they to find the volume of, last they will find the volume of an irregular shape.
Level 2 Help Video
Level 3) Boss Fight
In this level students will fall through a dropper game and need to land in water to survive the fall. Once in the Battle Room the student will find an irregular shape to examine and find the volume of. After the student has an answer they will go to the NPC room to submit an answer. If it is correct the student will be given battle gear and a Wither Boss will be summoned to fight.
After the student has beaten the boss or time in the class has run out return to the NPC room and go to the Score Room. The student will get three scores that align to the measurement and data standards covered in the lesson.
5.MD.3 has a total of 3 points
5.MD.4 has a total of 4 points
5.MD.5 has a total of 2 points
