I am SO excited to share my newest math story activity pack! I absolutely adore the Sir Cumference books by Cindy Neuschwander. If you haven't read them, you should check them out! They are clever and witty, and teach a variety of geometry topics in a way that is fun and engaging for kids! *Please Note: Some of the links in this post are affiliate links and help support the work of this site. Thanks for understanding! Feel free to read our Keep Reading...

## Sir Cumference Lesson! {Euler’s Law}

There are so many benefits to reading and engaging with math stories. But I think students will get even more out of the story if the learning doesn't stop once the last page is read. Therefore, I have been creating activities to go along with some of my favorite math books! (If you missed the activities for Math Curse by Jon Scieszka, be sure to check it out!). Honestly, I love all the Sir Cumference books by Cindy Neuschwander. They are Keep Reading...

## Exploring Volume: FREE Lesson!

To continue with my study of 3-D shapes, I have created a lesson to begin exploring volume. Like surface area, this is something that is often rushed through, and students are told to just "plug it into the formula." But I have seen this lead to many unnecessary mistakes because students never actually understand where the formula comes from, and therefore they end up "plugging in" the wrong things. Understanding WHY the formula for prisms Keep Reading...

## Surface Area Practice Worksheets

Since I posted some lessons to help students learn and understand surface area last week, I thought I would add a couple of practice worksheets to go with it! These are simple and short, but I hope you find them helpful! The first has various prisms and cylinders, while the second covers pyramids and cones. I tried to use fairly simple examples so that they would be appropriate for middle school or high school, so if you are looking for more Keep Reading...

## 3-D Shapes Worksheets! {FREE Printables!}

One Geometry topic that is introduced at a young age and then explored in more complex ways as kids get older is 3D shapes. Obviously, the first thing young mathematicians learn is to simply recognize the shapes, learn their names and discover them in the world around us. As kids get older, it's important to help them learn and understand polyhedron nets. Understanding what these shapes look like "flat" helps with spatial sense and reasoning and Keep Reading...
