Product Description

Are you looking for a way to help your students practice calculating volume of 3D shapes? Don't miss out on this easy to use, no-prep, print and go project for Middle School students.

Back Story:

You have been asked by the mayor of the city to create a new city block. Using the volumes and the square units of space that have been given, design a 3D model that meets all of the mayors criteria (there are building and other aesthetic and functional requirements).

*********************************************************************************************************

This activity allows students to practice:

  • Making nets of a cylinder, square pyramid, triangular pyramid, triangular prism, and cone.
  • working backwards to discover the side lengths of the base shape of each 3D shape above
  • scale factors - in an extended version for earlier finishers or those wishing to challenge themselves
