Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Measuring Volume of Irregular Objects Using Water Displacement - Section 2: Using a Story to Hook Students

 

Getting kids excited about learning is an important part of teaching and learning.  Piquing their interest with a quick TEDEd video that introduces the topic of water displacement gives students something to relate their ideas to when trying to explain how they can measure the volume of an irregular object.  Ultimately, the video gets them interested in the topic and supplies them with background knowledge that can help them to more confidently tackle more complex ideas.
