We have counted squares to find the area of a shape and can use that to help us find the volume in this lesson. Let's try this problem to review.
Find the area of the shape.
Let's see how we use unit cubes to find the volume of shapes.
In this figure, $1$1 block $=$= $1$1 cm3.
What is the volume of the solid figure?
