Take the bummer out of summer school for your 8th grade math re-testers with this bundle, which includes 7 of my favorite activities for STAAR Reporting Category 4. Topics covered include: Pythagorean Theorem, volume, surface area, similarity, and the effects of dilation on perimeter, area, and volume.

You won’t find any boring worksheets here – just highly engaging food and game-based activities to facilitate intense and meaningful instruction on these heavily-tested topics. Curriculum coordinators, have no fear: purchase of this bundle carries a multiple license, meaning that all the teachers in your school district can use these activities with no copyright hassles. (Take a look at the copyright page included in the preview for more details on that.) Here’s what you get:

Pythagorean Theorem Modeling Activity with Cheez-its

Pythagorean Pow: A Koosh Ball Game for Interactive Whiteboards

Spheres Are Sweet: A Candy-based Lesson on Volume

Volume Cone-acopia: A Candy-based lesson on Volume of Cones

Surface Area and Volume Koosh Ball Game for Interactive Whiteboards

Change in Dimension Tic-Tac-Toe

Similarity Scavenger Hunt

I highly recommend that you check out each individual product page for more details about each activity, including the materials that each activity requires.

This bundle would also make a great end-of-year resource that will keep your kiddos engaged and learning right up to the last bell of the school year. Or, just snag it while it’s cheap (40% off!) and save the activities for next year!

Thanks so much for dropping by my store, and I hope you and your students enjoy these activities. Your questions and feedback are welcome and appreciated!

Thanks again, and best wishes!
