The volume product is perfect to teach volume, perimeter and area. This product is designed to encourage students to become architects and create their own city. Students will create a draft, make rectangular nets, build prisms and place them on a map. While the students are creating, they're also learning important math concepts that will help them throughout life! 


What's included:
This activity includes clear directions, student examples, a city planning project dimension sheet, map template, centimeter grid paper and rubric.

This activity will encourage students to create their own city and learn about math at the same time. Students will discover how rectangular prisms are constructed and place them in appropriate places.  

Students will also explore how grids can help identify the length, width, and height of rectangular prisms. By using trial and error, as well as perseverance skills, students will find the volume of each building and create a city that is only limited by their imagination.

A lovely byproduct is all the learning that happened. My kids also know about volume and how to measure to the nearest centimeter. I highly recommend this product."
