    This fits well with what we are learning next week. Volume of spheres and cones. They’re coming from 7th grade where they learned the relationship between surface area of the base of a prism or cylinder with its’ height and volume. I really like the meatball example. I think that it will be great to get students to reflect about what volume is, how it relates to the base area and depth of a cylinder. They can then speculate with regards to the volume of the spheres.
