I can find the volume of three dimensional solid figures.
I can use volume formulas for cylinders, pyramids, cones, and spheres to solve problems.

The students were asked to design a sandcastle using prisms, pyramids, cylinders, cones, and spheres. They had to create their own realistic, proportionate dimensions to the pieces of the castle. They were then responsible for finding the surface area and volume of the sandcastle they created. The were asked to provide a drawing or picture of their castle and a copy of their neatly organized calculations.
