    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 comparison-filling both forms with another object (like the popcorn challenge)

    direct measurement-measuring 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 measurement-give measurements and calculate using the formulas.
