In this project, students use their research skills and knowledge of geometry (area, surface area, and volume) to research zoo animals (incubation period, average weight, average lifespan, natural habitat), design a living space for the animals, and design buildings at the zoo. Next, students will calculate the area of the living spaces, surface area of the buildings, and volume of the buildings. Finally, students will create a presentation to display what they learned and how they used math in this real-world project. The Geometry Unit Project can be used before the unit as a pre-assessment, during the unit as a formative assessment, or after the unit as a post-assessment.
