Year 6 Volume of a Cuboid Game

Teacher Specific Information

This Year 6 Volume of a Cuboid Game includes five questions designed to check and consolidate pupils’ understanding of calculating the volume of a cuboid using the formula: l x w x h. Pupils will complete a statement by calculating the volume of a dice 3 times the size of a given dimension, match the correct volume to three given cuboids, find missing dimensions, establish whether all given cuboids have the same area, and identify the dimensions of a cuboid with a given volume.
