Let's Build Candy Pyramids- A fun, hands-on math project to engage all learners!
Are you looking for a way to engage your students in a real-life application of geometry concepts?! Let's Build Candy Pyramids is the perfect project! I have completed this project for the last three years with my middle school math students and they talk about it all year! This project helps students learn about pyramids while constructing their own using toothpicks and gum drops. Students will also practice calculating volume of the pyramids.
