Hey there, young gardener! Today, we’re going to learn how to change **cubic meters** into **cubic feet**. Cubic meters and cubic feet are both ways to measure **volume**, which tells us how much **space something takes up**.

Imagine you have a **garden box** that is **0.35 cubic meters** in size. To help you understand this measurement better, let’s convert it to cubic feet, which is another way to think about how much dirt you might need for your garden.

To convert cubic meters to cubic feet, we can use the magic number:

1 cubic meter is equal to about **35.3147 cubic feet**.

So to find out how many cubic feet are in **0.35 cubic meters**, we can multiply:

$$

0.35 \, \text{m}^3 \times 35.3147 \, \text{ft}^3/\text{m}^3

$$

When you do the math, you will find that:

$$

0.35 \, \text{m}^3 \approx 12.3881 \, \text{ft}^3

$$

Now you know that **0.35 cubic meters** is about **12.39 cubic feet**. This means if you were filling containers to plant soybeans or flowers, you’d need about **12.39 cubic feet** of soil.

Here are **7 objects** that take up about the same space as **0.35 cubic meters** or **12.39 cubic feet**:

- A large
**storage bin**that holds about 12 gallons. - A
**medium-sized fish tank**that holds around 10-12 gallons of water. - A stack of
**3 to 4 garden bags**of potting soil, each one being about 3-4 cubic feet. - A
**small refrigerator**or a cooler that can fit about 12 cubic feet of food and drinks. - A
**large cardboard box**that can fit a couple of small gardening tools and supplies. - Several large bags of
**fertilizer**that together weigh around 100 pounds! - A
**doghouse**designed for a medium-sized dog.

Now you’re ready to fill your **garden with wonders** using the right amounts of soil, fertilizer, and everything else you need! Happy gardening! 🌱
