This was a performance task I gave to my geometry students after our unit on Similarity. *It could be used at multiple grade levels* It presents a real life scenario and requires students to use their knowledge of similarity to find lengths, perimeters, areas and volumes of similar figures. The task guides students to think of multiple solutions to the same problem and make conjectures about volumes of similar figures.
This was created as a word document so it can be easily adapted and edited for your classroom.
A Lesson Plan and grading rubric (with answers) are included for your convenience.
This could be worked on individually or with a partner.
