Use these three amazing products as a great introduction to teaching your students about surface area.
First, start by showing them how to find the surface area of nets. This helps students see how surface area works on a two-dimensional level.
Next, give the students the surface area of pyramids and prisms pages. This breaks down the three-dimensional shape into pieces to help see students how surface area works when the shape is all together.
Finally, there are some task cards to give students as practice. Drawing your own three-dimensional shapes can take time and is hard to do. Use this resource to do the hard work for you.
