8th graders engage in an interdisciplinary activity about advertising through integration with music, science, mathematics, visual art, drama-theater, and language arts. They write advertising jingle lyrics in English language arts or music class and compose the music for their jingles in music class to market original products that they create in science class. Tip: This concept can be adapted to a variety of scenarios.
In this geometry instructional activity, students draw nets for different figures. They calculate the surface area for each solid drawn. There are 8 questions.
In this perimeter and area worksheet, students find the surface area of given polygons.  They determine the area of shaded regions.  This one-page worksheet contains 10 multiple-choice problems.  Answers are provided.
Learners calculate volume using the correct formula and the correct unit. They explore different prisms, spheres, cubes, and cones as they calculate volume and relate it to depths in oceans.
Students analyze and identify different parts of a solid. In this geometry lesson plan, students calculate the surface area of solids and prisms, as they derive the formulas based on the shape of the polygon.
Students study a variety of math concepts in the context of cooking up a meal. For this math lesson, students calculate surface area and volume. They draw and interpret different types of graphs.
In this maximum and minimum worksheet, students solve and complete 10 various types of word problems. First, they find the numbers if the product of the square of one of the numbers with the cube of the other number is to be a maximum. Then, students determine the coordinates of the point on a parabola given a point.
In this volume worksheet, students find the volume of boxes going into a truck and answer short answer questions about it. Students complete 3 questions.
For this reference worksheet, students review eleven terms, fifteen abbreviations, and eight shapes and formulas.  This is a basic geometry reference sheet.
In this perimeter and area worksheet, students find the perimeter of various polygons.  They compute the perimeter, surface area, circumference, and volume of given figures.  Students explore trigonometric ratios.  This twelve-page worksheet contains detailed notes, examples, and approximately 10 examples with answers.
Eighth graders define volume, prisms, cylinders, pyramids, and cones. They find the volume of those shapes, and determine which volume formulas to use for each shape. They utilize a worksheet and access websites imbedded in this plan to gain practice.
Students create three dimensional shapes using concept maps. In this geometry lesson, students investigate the impact of mental schemas on humans. They collect data on this topic and plot their data on a coordinate plane.
Underclassmen create a cone-shaped landform and then draw a contour map for it. Then they examine a quadrangle (which was easily located with an online search), and relate it to what they experienced. The accompanying worksheet is specifically written for the Wahtoke quadrangle in California, but you could imitate the worksheet using a local landform for increased interest. A crossword puzzle with topography terms is also included. Though this suggests that it is for a high school level, it is somewhat simplistic and may be better used in a middle school earth science or geography lesson.
For this college level calculus worksheet, students evaluate integrals and determine whether it is best to use Green’s Theorem, the Fundamental Theorem of Line Integrals, direct integration, or a combination.  The two page worksheet has six problems.  Answers are not provided. 
In this functions worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 6 different types of problems. First, they find the largest value of a given function. Then, students determine the values of the constants a, b, c, dso that the curve is a given equation. They also find the dimensions of a cylinder which has the smallest total surface area.
In this biology worksheet, students explore birds of prey. Students watch a video about Raptors and answer twenty-nine questions about what they just watched.
In this line and angles worksheet, students explore basic geometry vocabulary.  They classify polygons.  Students determine the area and perimeter of given shapes.  They examine the parts of a circle, find volume and surface area of objects.  Students identify various properties of angles and sides.  This nineteen-page worksheet contains detailed notes.  The approximately 15 examples may be used as independent work with answers.
In this volume and surface area worksheet, students answer ten multiple choice questions concerning the volume and surface area of various spheres.
Tenth graders explore the concept of 3-D similarity of polygons.  In this 3-D similarity of polygons lesson, 10th graders measure the lengths, widths, and heights of two boxes that students consider to be similar.  Students work in groups to identify corresponding angles and sides among two 3-D figures.
Sixth graders study the chronology of major events of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. They use primary and secondary resources to obtain information about the plants which were identified by Lewis and Clark.
