This 3 Act Lesson was created by Jenn Vadnais. You can visit her website at jennvadnais.com. In this lesson, students will exploring finding the number of cubes inside a PlayDoh container.
My students really enjoyed this activity and asked a lot of questions during Act 2. My favorite was "How many cubes does the ball 'poop' out?" It was a great question, and I rolled with it. The lesson Jenn Vadnais created was very engaging and helped my students easily see that the space inside of a shape can be described by the number of cubes that fit inside of it.
