Use this activity as a fun way to review surface area, nets, and volume. It is a perfect culminating activity for a unit on surface area.
In the activity, students are asked to find the length, width, and height of a box. Once they measure and record the dimensions, they will use those to calculate the surface area and the volume of the box. Students will then draw a net on the wrapping paper using the exact dimensions of their box. Once their net is drawn, students will cut out the net and use the net made of wrapping paper to wrap their box. Next, they will complete a reflection on the activity.
