5th Grade Volume Worksheets

Volume of Rectangular Prisms

On this webpage you will find our range of worksheets to help you work out the volume of simple 3d shapes such as rectangular prisms.

They are also very useful for introducing the concept of volume being the number of cubes that fill up a space.

These sheets are graded from easiest to hardest, and each sheet comes complete with answers.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

  • learn how to find the volume of simple 3d shapes by counting cubes;
  • learn how to find the volume of rectangular prisms by multiplying length x width x height
  • practice using their knowledge to solve basic volume problems.

What is Volume?

  • Volume is the amount of space that is inside a 3 dimensional shape.
  • Because it is an amount of space, it has to be measured in cubes.
  • If the shape is measured in cm, then the volume would be measured in cubic cm or cm3
  • If the shape is measured in inches, then the volume would be measured in cubic inches or in3

Volume of a Rectangular Prism

  • The volume of a rectangular prism is the number of cubes it is made from.
  • To find the number of cubes, we need to multiply the length by the width by the height.
  • So Volume = length x width x height or l x w x h.
  • We could also multiply the area of the base (which is the length x width) by the height.
  • So Volume = l x w x h or b x h (where b is the area of the base)

Example

In the example above, the length is 3, the width is 6 and the height is 2.

So the volume is 3 x 6 x 2 = 36cm3 or 36 cubic cm.

This tells us that there are 36 cm cubes that make up the shape.
