Students will design a city with 12 buildings.
2 buildings in the shape of a trapezoid
2 parks or gardens in the shape of a triangle
3 buildings in the shape of a rectangle
2 buildings of combined shapes
3 of your choice
Students first draw out their city 2D and find the area and volume.
You can also have students actually create their city using paper, cardboard, legos, or any other supplies! They can then calculate the volume of their buildings!
