Your students are in charge of creating their own museum! This product is perfect to teach area and surface area. This product is designed to encourage students to become architects and create their own castle. Students will create a draft, make nets, build prisms and place them on a map. While the students are creating, they're also learning important math concepts that will help them throughout life!
This activity includes clear directions, student examples, a castle planning project dimension sheet, map template, centimeter grid paper and rubric.
This activity will encourage students to create their own castle and learn about math at the same time. Students will discover how prisms are constructed and place them in appropriate places.
Students will also explore how grids can help identify the length, width, radius and circumference of 3D shapes. By using trial and error, as well as perseverance skills, students will find the area and surface area of each building and create a castle that is only limited by their imagination.

★★★★ "I used this to teach surface area during the last week of school and the kids thought it was AWESOME. I even ended up sharing it with a colleague that I team teaching with. My students loved this! They had such a great time, they even combined their castles to make a huge kingdom!"
