In Topic A, students extend their spatial structuring to three dimensions through an exploration of volume. They come to see volume as an attribute of solid figures and understand that cubic units are used to measure it (5.MD.3). Using unit cubes, both customary and metric, students build three-dimensional shapes, including right rectangular prisms, and count to find the volume (5.MD.4). By developing a systematic approach to counting the unit cubes, they make connections between area and volume.
