Product Description
SQUAREA (a hybrid word I created which stands for "Square Area") is a hands-on math project that helps students to discover area, volume, and surface area in a very concrete, visual manner. Students measure objects in a classroom, create square feet, draw square inches, construct cubic feet, construct square yards and cubic yards, and investigate the surface area of a cube. I teach it every year. You'll love it!

Math Content: Area, Volume, and Surface Area

Suggested Grade Level: 5th-8th

Time Required: about 2 class periods

Materials Needed: Construction paper, tape

Teacher Testimonial: Since I developed this project I have used it several times with 6th and 7th grade students. The way in which it allows them to actively learn the concepts or area, volume, and surface area is truly remarkable. The students are able to visualize the concepts of a square inch, a square foot, and a square yard. They work cooperatively with others to incorporate their personal square foot with others to create a cubic foot. Then they combine these with the cubic feet from other classes to construct a cubic yard. I often have this cubic yard on display at Open House for the parents to see.

The SQUAREA Project includes:
2 SQUAREA Project student worksheets
2 SQUAREA Project student worksheet answer keys
1 SQUAREA Project Teacher Tips page

Enjoy your lesson!!
