Fantastic end of the year class or take home project!
Give your students the chance to practice finding the surface area and volume of geometric solids with a theme they all know and love, Angry Birds!
Students will build the characters from paper nets, find the actual dimensions of each character, calculate its surface area and volume, and finally create a diorama to display their work in the theme of the Angry Birds game.
This product includes an original net for each character, a student directions page with expectations and grading scale, cards for showing work to be attached to the diorama, and of course an answer key for the teacher.
The art work included here is all original and unlike the other nets available online, each character in this product is a different solid.
Students should know how to find the surface area and volume of:
Rectangular prisms - Blue Bird
Triangular prisms - Red Bird
Trapezoidal prisms - White Bird
Hexagonal prisms - Green Pig
Octagonal prisms - Black Bird
Square based pyramids - Yellow Bird
* Note: Direct measure of the apothem and altitudes can be found with a ruler, so trigonometry is not necessary.
This makes a fun end of the year group project for a Geometry class or a great individual project. Perfect for letting kids show their creative side in Geometry class. Great for display at open house.
