6th graders will be tasked with creating the most efficient packaging size for a random object found in the classroom. The packet you will be downloading is ready to go. Detailed instructions are available for students to work at their own pace in this project based learning activity.
This is a great way to get them to practice their geometry standards in a hands on way.
Included: Introduction to activity, checklist for turn-in, brainstorm and planning sheets, instructions to create, a chance to make improvements, and then turning in a final prototype.
A rubric is also included. Students will have a chance to self-reflect and do a self-assessment.
