Perimeter, Area, and Volume
After providing your learners with a pre-assessment, group learners by ability level. Groups develop and use strategies to find perimeter of regular or irregular shapes using string, paper clips, links, and other objects. They find the area using tiles or counting squares of regular and irregular shapes on a grid.

Box of Clay
What happens to a volume when you scale the dimensions of a rectangular prism? In this problem, a box of clay is increased in each dimension, with the intent to see if learners can generalize the result. The addition of physical models could help them visualize the problem and gain a deeper understanding of the solution.

Fish Tank Problem (Volume)
This task will give your geometry learners practice solving problems using volume formulas of cylinders and prisms as well as make some fish very happy. The task is to submerge a home for the fish in a tank that is a rectangular prism. The fish home is a cylinder with a hole in the middle in the shape of a right square prism.
