This post explains and gives practice opportunities related to TEKS 5.6A:

recognize a cube with side length of one unit as a unit cube having one cubic unit of volume and the volume of a three-dimensional figure as the number of unit cubes (n cubic units) needed to fill it with no gaps or overlaps if possible

## Instruction

Before students learn to calculate volume, they learn to visualize it using small, 1-unit cubes.

## STAAR Practice
