After learning the volume and surface area of a cylinder, this project is a great way to check for understanding! Students are given a task of finding how to double the volume of a given can without changing the surface area too much. The task gives the original can and 3 options for them to choose.
Once they have found the solution, the fun begins! Students construct the 3D BEAST Energy can and decorate it. It is a great way for them to find the measurements of all the parts of the net they will need as well as using rulers and protractors.
