I think it would be neat to play with volume but more challenging of using a rectangular prism vs a cylinder to see which one could hold more
direct comparison comparing the two forms through visual inspection (like height)
indirect comparisonfilling both forms with another object (like the popcorn challenge)
direct measurementmeasuring lengths, heights and areas
rectangular prism: measure height, width and length need for calculations of area of base times the height
cylinder: measure circumference, diameter, and height need for calculations of area of the base times the height
indirect measurementgive measurements and calculate using the formulas.
