# Volume of Composite Figures (Additive Volume)

On these worksheets, students calculate the volumes of composite figures. To do this, they find the volumes of the two (or more) rectangular prisms that make up the shape; then they add them together. These activities align with Common Core Standard 5.MD.5c. ## Basic: All Lengths GivenSingle, Whole Number Lengths
