NC Standards Course of Study Objective(s) Addressed:
2.02
Solve problems involving volume and surface area of cylinders, prisms, and composite
shapes.
3.01 The learner will understand and use properties and relationships in geometry. Using
three-dimensional figures: A. Identify, describe, and draw from various views (top, side, front,
corner).
General Goal(s):
The learner will understand and use measurement involving two- and three-
dimensional figures.
Specific Lesson Plan Objectives:
Upon completion of this lesson, students will: (1) be able
to explain what surface area means; (2) correctly use the terminology used with surface area;
(3) have experimented with the surface area of different shapes
Required Materials:
Computer, Handout, centimeter grid paper, ruler, tape
surface area – a measure of square units needed to cover the outside of a figure
Vocabulary:
Ask: How can we find the area of a two-dimensional figure?
Do you think that it is possible to find the area of a three dimensional figure?
Who can tell me what a three dimensional figure is?
Step-By-Step Procedures:
Start Alice World titled Measurement. Students will identify the following figures; circle, square,
triangle, rectangular prism, triangular prism, cube, cone and cylinder presented in the Alice
Clicking each figure will cause it to rotate. The triangle in Alice is a little 3-D students

are to disregard this.
As each shape is displayed students will complete the first two columns of
the handout for each shape.
Students will go through the world completing the activities.
Give students centimeter grid paper and have them to trace and cut individual parts that can be
used to cover their entire textbook.
