Send your students around your classroom on a scavenger hunt while finding the surface area 16 different three dimensional figures. All of the figures are composed of square, rectangular or triangular sides. Most of the problems show the net, however, there are a few stations that show the 3-dimensional figure. For those, I have my students draw their own net on lined paper to find the surface area. Side lengths include whole numbers, fractions and decimals.
Hang the 16 cards randomly around your room. Each card has an answer on top and a new problem on bottom. Ideally students would work in pairs and pairs can start at any station around the room. When they solve their first problem, they need to find that answer somewhere in the classroom. They will then answer the next problem and so on. This is a great self checking activity because if they can't find their answer they know they made a mistake. Also, students should end up at the same station they started at.
Answer key is included, however, students' papers may look slightly different depending on the station they start at. Also, I included both an orange colored set and a plain white set.
