Finding Volume Worksheets

Are your students working on how to find the volume of a 3D shape? If so, Teach Starter has some worksheets to supplement your classroom instruction! So what exactly is volume? Volume is the amount of space inside of a solid figure. To find the volume of an object, simply use the formula, V = L x W x H. This set of differentiated worksheets can be used with students who are still working on calculations with whole numbers as well as those students who are ready to work with fractions and decimals.  

This resource includes three different levels for students to practice finding the volume of rectangular prisms and cubes. Students must answer 10 questions calculating the volume with:

  • Whole numbers
  • Fractions
  • Decimals

An answer key is included with your download to make grading fast and easy!

For students who need a bit of a challenge, encourage them to create their own volume problems using a mix of whole numbers, decimals, and fractions.

If there are students who need a bit of support, consider using the “Finding Volume with Whole Numbers” version first. For students who struggle with multiplication computation, you can provide them with a multiplication chart for this activity.
