I love creating products that have a real world application, especially in math. This task takes students through choosing a cage for a bearded dragon that has a specific volume, and then making sure it has certain specifications, which will utilize fraction skills (adding, subtracting, multiplying, and dividing). Students will then draw a floor plan that is to scale of the cage that was chosen. As a challenge, students can then draw a 3D cage using the same scale that was chosen for their blueprint. An answer key is included, along with pictures of a sample floor plan and 3D drawing.
This is a great way to review fraction and volume skills, or give your advanced students a challenge!
