**Subject Area:**Mathematics

**Grade:**6

**Domain-Subdomain:**Geometry

**Cluster:**Level 2: Basic Application of Skills & Concepts

**Cluster:**Solve real-world and mathematical problems involving area, surface area, and volume. (Supporting Cluster) -

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.

## STEM Lessons - Model Eliciting Activity

This lesson is designed for 7th grade students and is best suited for advanced students. It can be used (with modifications) in the general education classroom for 7th grade or in an advanced 6th grade classroom. In this MEA, students select jars for candles based on a variety of factors and then design boxes to contain the jars.

This MEA will have students determining the safest and most cost effective material to use when building a tree house.They will do this by calculating surface area and determining cost.

This Model Eliciting Activity (MEA) asks students to develop a procedure to fit the most amount of plant packages on one sheet of cardboard, using nets and surface area.

## Problem-Solving Task

This resource introduces students to the aspects a builder must think about before constructing a building. Students will study the cabin blueprint of Henry David Thoreau and then will find the surface area of the walls and how much paint would be needed. Then, students will find the volume of the cabin to determine the home heating needs. Third, students will study the blueprint and will create a 1/10 scale of it on graph paper and then will use art supplies to create a model of the cabin. Last, students will design and create models of furniture to scale for the cabin.

## Virtual Manipulative

This virtual manipulative allows students to manipulate blocks, add or remove blocks, and connect them together to form solids. They can also experiment with counting the number of exposed faces, seeing what happens to the surface area when blocks are added or removed, and "unfolding" a block to create a net .
