### Description

Students work together in groups to construct 3-D figures from nets, build a CASTLE, calculate the surface area and volume, and compete to make the most creative castle! This project is a must-have for studying surface area and volume!

Castle Creation

In this package:

- Student packet that includes guidelines to build a castle with a group

- Teacher edition with important notes and implementation guide

- Nets for: cubes, rectangular prisms, cones, tetrahedrons, cylinders and square pyramids

- Formula guide for students

- Prize coupons for winners of the "Most Creative Castle"

How it works:

Students first create their own 3-D figure, defining the number of edges, faces, vertices, and the volume. They then work within their groups to create a castle using color and their imagination! Students are asked to find the TOTAL number of edges, faces, vertices, and total volume for their entire castle!

Duration:

approximately two 1-hour class periods

Possible uses: review of surface area and volume, final project, intro to surface area and volume
