Comparing Spheres & Cylinders Lab

MATERIALS: Play-dough, Transparency & Stop Motion Studio

DIRECTIONS:

Today you will be discovering how the volume of a cylinder and the volume of a sphere relate. We know that the formula for the volume of a cylinder is V = Bh.


Essential Questions:

  • What is the formula used to find the Volume of a Sphere?
  • How does it relate to the Volume of a Cylinder?

STOP MOTION STUDIO

You and your partner will be making a stop motion video to go along with this lab. Make sure you have Stop Motion Studio on ONE device in your group. Get as creative as you would like! You must show everything related to manipulating the play-dough from a sphere to a cylinder and how you got your formula from the lab.


What is Stop Motion Studio? Check out the video below to see an example.
