10 cubes
Long ago, I made a string of ten graded cubes.
 
Each edge of the smallest cube was one centimetre long. Each edge of the largest cube was ten centimetres long.
 
I labelled each one with its volume in cubic centimetres.
 
The challenge for you is to make a string of graded cubes. You might do better working in a team, so encourage your friends to help!
 
We would love to hear how you made your own cubes and to see photos of them.
