### What is the same? What is different?

### Making Connections

*What connections do you see between the dimensions (length, width, height) of the sugar box and its volume?*

### Reflect

*What might a general rule be for finding the volume of a rectangular prism?*

*Convince your peers.*

### Consolidation Prompts

*Consider the following scenarios:*

- A box of dice has 5 rows of 6 dice in the bottom layer. The box holds 8 layers of dice. How many dice does the box hold?
- A moving truck holds 8 rows of 12 same-size boxes in the bottom layer. The boxes are stacked 6 layers high. How many boxes does the truck hold?

*For both scenarios above:*

*What information is given?**What information are you trying to reveal?**Model both scenarios and solve.*
