5th Graders Use Math Skills to Build Robots

Students created their own “Area Robots” on 1cm grid paper and then answered questions about the area and perimeter of each body part. Students then transformed their 2D robot design into a 3D model. This activity was used to support and build background knowledge about measurements which would help students to understand and calculate volume of rectangular prism.
