Engage students in their use of area and volume when they "compete" in the Monster Bake-Off. Students design, analyze and write about cakes with missing centers to apply knowledge ofarea and volume
. Use for study of polygons and circles. Two options: area only or area and volume. Great to differentiate.
This is a great project for upper elementary students as well as 6th graders. Give the project to the whole class or differentiate by providing the project to small groups or individuals. Outstanding for gifted students as well.
Included in this ready to use project:
- Teacher's guide.
- Student handouts for all the elements of the monster bake-off
- Ideas for extensions.
A great addition to your upper elementary or middle school math curriculum.
