Give your students practice with finding the surface area of rectangular prisms, cubes, and triangular prisms. There are a couple of ways I use this resource in my classroom. If I need my students to get up and move around the classroom, I print off one or two of each kind and hang them around the classroom. The students need to find each shape and then calculate the surface area of each one. There are four triangular prisms, four cubes, and four rectangular prisms.
Another way I use this is if students especially need extra help, a reteach, or they are just starting out with surface area. I cut out each shape (or choose a few for each student to cut out) and have them fold up the nets to get a sense of what they look like as three dimensional shapes.
Included in this packet are four nets each for rectangular prisms, cubes, and triangular prisms. Five of the shapes include decimals or fractions.
Also included is a student answer sheet and an answer key.
