Surface Area and Volume

There are not many resources on the internet for teaching surface area and volume (at least as far as I can see) for upper grade elementary students. So I thought I'd share the lesson I use to introduce the concept to my students.

This lesson comes from (Utah Education Network), but I was introduced to it at a summer seminar (Utah Core Academy) that I went to a couple years ago.

The lesson is called Candies R Us and students get to explore the concepts of surface area and volume as they try to make boxes for a candy store. Each candy = one unit and each box needs to fit 12 candies. Read the lesson for more more information.
