Volume and Surface Area Math Lib

In this activity, students will generate pieces to a story as they move throughout nine stations. They will practice finding the volume and surface area of cylinders, prisms, pyramids, and cones.

Their answer to each station will give them a piece of their story (who, doing what, with who, where, when, etc.) This is a much more fun approach to multiple choice, and the students adore reading the story to the class. They get very excited to see which of their teachers is the "star" of the story. Both color and black and white versions of the activity included.

EDIT ALL STORY ELEMENTS! All slides are given in an editable format so you are free to personalize the story for your students. PowerPoint is required to edit. Only story elements can be changed, not the actual problems.

GOOGLE FORM OPTION: This activity includes a link to a Google Forms version of the activity. If you have already purchased this resource, please redownload for the update.
