    In the classroom, I would start off simple with rectangular prisms, shoe boxes, game boxes, anything we could get our hands on. I would have students measure surface area and volume, using square inches and cubic inches (or square cm and cubic cm). I would have students make estimates first– how many 1 inch squares would cover the box? How many cubes would fit inside the box.
