Student Activities
Activator Students will display the following shape properties. Students will write the unit used to measure each property. Subjects: Math, Computer Science, Digital Technology, Engineering, 21st Century Learning
Units Students will display a 3D quadrilateral in Kodu. Students will learn that a 3D square is cube, while the proper term for a 3D rectangle is rectangular cuboid. Students will learn that length, width, height, and perimeter can be measured in meters, where one unit is one meter (m). Students learn that the area is measured in m2 because there are two numbers used to calculate it (length and width). Students learn that volume is measured in m3 because there are three numbers used to calculate it (length, width, and height). Students create and display a shape such as a 4 x 6 x 2 island in Kodu. Students identify the different parts of the shape and calculate the length, width, height, area, surface area, perimeter, and volume of the object.

Area and Perimeter Students will create a 2 x 2 square in Kodu. Students will respond with the area and the perimeter. Students complete the Student Activity: Area and Perimeter Subjects: Subjects: Math, Computer Science, Digital Technology, Engineering, 21st Century Learning
Conclusion Students discuss how measurements are affected when one attribute to be measured is held constant and another is changed. Students respond to the guided questions about the measurements and the shapes in the world. Subjects: Subjects: Math, Computer Science, Digital Technology, Engineering, 21st Century Learning
