Discover Extraordinary Volumes

Discover Extraordinary Volumes This is a chart that compares the volume of things from your backyard pool to the Pacific Ocean. Cubes are used to demonstrate the building up of volumes. You know how a Rubiks cube has 27 smaller cubes? We start with a single one of those 27 then jump to the full Rubiks. We'll keep adding more and more together as we build up. It'll also be necessary to change the scale and the big thick arrows indicate when.
