# 6th Grade Math - Project Based Learning Unit - Cereal Box Re-Design

Product Description
This is a Project Based Learning Unit that focuses on students redesigning the traditional Cereal Box. Students will work through the Engineering Design Process as well as learn the background mathematical concepts to create a newer version of a Cereal Container that decreases the Surface Area of materials while simultaneously increasing the total Volume.

Project Based Learning Unit - Cereal Box Re-Design

Topics Covered:

•The Engineering Design Process
•Volume of Prisms
•Area and Surface Area of Polygons using Nets
•Operations with Decimals
•Research and Investigation
•Presentation Development

*****************************************************************************
This Project Based Learning unit targets 6th grade ELA, Science, Math, and Social Studies Standards with a focus on the Engineering Design Process (NGSS), but can easily be modified to meet standards for grade levels above and below with simple modifications.
