The Surface Area of a Cylinder

Students measure the circumference of a cylinder. In this cylinder lesson plan, students use round container lids and flexible rectangles to measure the circumference of the cylinder. They put the shapes together to make their own cylinders. They review their knowledge of how to find the area of circles and rectangles. Then with teacher guidance, they find the circumference of the cylinders.
