Product Description
The first few days after summer vacation can hectic with teachers trying to prepare the first unit and students wanting to talk about their summer. This activity covers both. It also helps students get back into mathematical thinking by having them find ratios, percents, and basic surface area and volume.

In this activity, students:
- List the activities they did and estimate what percent of their summer they took up.
- Create a circle graph (with helpful hints on dividing circles into percents)
- Create a Memory Cube of their six favorite memories and actually assemble it
- Find the volume and surface area of the cube using equations with explanations
- Create academic, behavioral, health, and extra goals and describe how they will accomplish them
- Present everything (as seen in the preview)
- View 3 people they interact with often, and 3 they don't and write down something they learn from the students' mini-presentations.

Students will enjoy it, and get to talk about their summers in a constructive, mathematical way.
