Everyone loves chocolate, but how do candy manufacturers design the packaging? This activity challenges students to consider how this is accomplished. Students are given data for the size of the chocolates and how many need to fit in a box. They must use area skills to design a package that will hold all of these chocolates and satisfy the given parameters.
A list of materials, directions, extensions and Common Core Standards are all provided.
