Surface Area & Volume - Surface Area & Volume - Unit 11: Surface Area and Volume of a Castle FREEBIE!This is the FREE Composite Three-Dimensional Figure Activity for a High School Geometry Class.In it students are given a "sand castle" like drawing that is composed of prisms, cones, cylinders, pyramids and a hemisphere.
Comparing Volumes of Cylinders, Spheres, and Cones- In this interactive from Annenberg Learner’s Learning Math, compare the volumes of a cylinder, cone, and sphere that all have the same radius and height. In the accompanying classroom activity, students fill cylinders, spheres, and cones with water in order to compare volumes of shapes with equal height and radius. They use the interactive to further explore the concept.
Connect Four: Volume and Surface Area for upper elementary or middle school math! Students must solve volume and surface area problems and connect four spaces in a row on their game board. Topics include volume of rectangular prisms, volume of triangular prisms, volume of pyramids, volume of cones, volume of cylinders, and surface area of rectangular prisms.
