# Measuring Volume with Cubes

**Introduction:**Did you ever play with wooden blocks when you were younger? Maybe you made towers with those colorful alphabet blocks and then knocked them down like Godzilla. Well, turns out you were preparing for when you would be learning about volume measurement of solid figures. And, that time is now!

**Volume is the amount of space taken up by an object.**A cube with a side that measures one unit is called a

*unit cube.*A unit cube has a volume of

*one cubic unit*. If you constructed a tower that was ten unit cubes high, your tower would have a volume of ten

*cubic units*. If you've never tried creating structures with wooden blocks, you should. It's a lot of fun!

**Directions for This Lesson:**In this lesson, you will learn how to measure volume with unit cubes. First, try the practice questions to determine what you already know about finding volume. Then, watch the video lessons to learn more about measuring volume with cubes. Finally, try what you learned in the activity and practice sections.
