This is a fun way to let students apply their understanding of Geometric measurements.
They are asked to work with a trapezoid, cylinder, sphere, pyramid, rectangular prism & cube to find area, perimeter, surface area, circumference and volume of different 2D and 3D shapes.
A link to a website will get you started with 3 great lesson sheets to get them thinking about the different measurements needed to distinguish between perimeter, area, surface area and volume.
Following the work on the lessons from the website, they will construct their own 3D stage and apply all the work they did on the worksheet to calculate values for a real life situation.
Multiple other options, suggestions included in teacher notes/instructions.
There is also a recommended time frame for completing the whole mini unit.
This is a GREAT end of the year activity!
