Uncle Norm wants to plant a tree in his back yard. He thinks he needs five cubic metres of soil, but his brainy niece Alanna isn’t so sure — that seems like a lot of soil! They go to the nursery where the garden expert shows them how soil is measured. The Rads make their own planter box, and add some green to Uncle Norm’s backyard.

The Gist: This episode is about the concept of volume, in particular, the cubic metre. It is emphasized that the m³ is a fundamental benchmark for 3D measurement and a physical model is used to provide a referent and aid in the estimation of related 3D measures.
