Volume Song Lyrics:

To find the volume of a cube,
Side times side times side will tell you:
The number of times a cubic unit
Will be able to fit inside it.

Imagine a cube with edges of three.
Multiply three by three by three to see
It can fit twenty-seven units
...gotta mention that they’re cubic!

When finding volume, don’t forget to mention:
The unit is a cube with three dimensions.

To get a rectangular prism’s volume right:
Length times width... times the height.
Cubic units label three dimensions
When we answer any volume questions.

With the dimensions two, three, and six,
first find the base: that’s length times width.
The base is six cubes; then multiply the height:
36 cubic units fill it up just right!

When finding volume, don’t forget to mention:
The unit is a cube with three dimensions.

A solid shape made of more than one prism
Has a volume you can find with this wisdom:

Think of each shape separately
And find the volume of each individually.
Then add the volumes nine and one:
We get ten cubic units and this problem’s done!
