Surface Area Robot Project
Product Description
The students will use boxes, tape, and aluminum foil to create their own robots! This fun project allows students to practice calculating surface area in a real-world situation. This project sheet includes the directions and space for students to show their work.

As the teacher, you will need:
- rulers or other measuring utensils
- tape
- lots of boxes (I asked other teachers to bring in their recycling!)

The students will:
- pick their boxes
- calculate the surface area of each box
- add the surfaces area together
- cover their robot in aluminum foil, based on the amount they calculated

This project takes about 4 days (depending on the length of your class) to complete, from introduction to finished robots.
