Welcome to our 5th Grade Volume Worksheets page.

Here you will find our collection of worksheets to introduce and help you learn about volume.

These worksheets will help you to understand and practice how to find the volume of rectangular prisms and other simple shapes.

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.

- 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 cm
^{3} - If the shape is measured in inches, then the volume would be measured in cubic inches or in
^{3}

- 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 = 36cm^{3} or 36 cubic cm.

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

We have split our worksheets up into different sections, to make it easier for you to select the right sheets for your needs.

- Section 1 - Find the Volume by Counting Cubes
- Section 2 - Finding the Volume by multiplication
- Section 3 - Match the Volume (multiplication)
- Section 3 - Volume Problem Solving Riddles

The first sheet is supported, the other two sheets are more independent.

You can choose between the standard or metric versions of sheets 2 and 3 (the measurements are the same)

This short video walkthrough shows several problems from our Find the Volume Sheet 2 being solved and has been produced by the West Explains Best math channel.
