Surface Area can be a more difficult concept for students to understand at first, but once they get it - they have it! I created these interactive notes activities to help break down finding surface area for rectangular prism, triangular prism and square pyramid. There are multiple versions which allows you to customize to your students! There is the title page, notes pages (completed, labels and formula removed, and one with all notes removed except figures) and examples (completed, answers removed, formula and answers removed and everything removed except figure). Along with these notes, I created a net for each figure that students can use in helping break down surface area. All of these components will make finding surface area a success in your classroom!

*Title Page
*Notes Pages - Completed, Labels and Formulas Removed, and ALL Notes Removed, Except Figures.
*Examples - Completed, Answers Removed, Rormulas and Answers Removed, Expect Figures.
*Nets - Rectangular Prism, Triangular Prism & Square Pyramid - All have written side lengths on them and labels for shapes (rectangles and triangles).
