Engage your students in composite area with this hands-on, creatively festive project!
I use this product at the very end of our area unit as a project-based assessment. Luckily, our area unit ends right before our Winter Break, so this makes for an engaging math activity for those last couple (crazy) days.
Students will create their own unique snow globe made up of multiple rectangular shapes. This project requires students to find area by counting units on a grid, as well as using a ruler to measure side lengths and multiplying. This was designed to be used with a third grade class to practice creating and finding composite areas. This project could easily be modified to fit younger or older grades by modifying the requirements for the snow globe shapes.
Included in this product are multiple templates for your students to use to create a neat and properly measured final snow globe.
I hope you and your students have fun!
If you use this product in your classroom, I'd love for you to share on Instagram and tag me @grade3inaz so that I can see!
