Are your 4th - 8th graders looking for a fun way to learn about finding perimeter, area and volume? This week-long project (approx. 5-7 days) is an exciting way to learn important math skills, make a Haunted House, and let students be creative. It contains everything you need, except for scissors, crayons, glue and smiles.
This project is so fun, that your students will not want it to end, and they will develop a true understanding what it means to find the volume, area and perimeter of a rectangular shape. Parents will love seeing how creative their children can be.
How does this fit your students' abilities? I have included 3 sets of worksheets that fit your students abilities.
*For younger students, a worksheet and quiz that uses only whole numbers to practice finding perimeter, area and volume.
*For more capable students, a worksheet and quiz that uses decimals to find perimeter, area and volume.
*For more advanced students, a worksheet and quiz that uses fractions to find perimeter, area and volume.
Each Quiz also includes one multi-step money question.
Answer Keys are provided for all worksheets and quizzes.
Finally, there is a writing component added to this project. Students may love getting a chance to write a creative story to go along with their Haunted House.
Have fun, Enjoy teaching and see the smile on your students faces and they build and design their Haunted Houses- Happy Halloween!!
