Use inquiry to discover how to calculate the surface area of a prism!
Great cross-content assignment- gets students to practice discovery through inquiry and math and science skills all in one!
Walked into a maternity substitute position with only 10 weeks left of school. Tried this activity with my "extraordinarily tough, highly UNmotivated" 7th graders... and to my surprise, they LOVED it! They would say things like, "can we do more of these activities, Ms. Pittos?"
As a result, these kids did awesome on their surface area assessments! Super proud of them :)
