Lesson Plan

LESSON TITLE: Understanding Surface Area SUBJECT AREA: Math


By Nichole Grant

TIME ALLOCATION: 30 minutes


GRADE LEVEL: 6th

OBJECTIVES (with active verbs):


1. Students will identify the process to find surface area of rectangular prisms.

2. Students will list the steps/process to solve surface area of rectangular prisms.

3. Students will demonstrate understanding by applying the steps/ process to find the surface area
of rectangular prisms in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

STANDARDS:
6.G.4
Represent three-dimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles, and use the nets
to find the surface area of these figures. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world
and mathematical problems.

DECONSTRUCTED LEARNING STANDARD (standards based grading):


Exceeds: I can use the steps/process for surface area of rectangular prisms to solve real world problems.
Meets: I can apply the steps/ process for surface area of rectangular prisms in the context of solving
mathematical problems.
Developing: I can Identify the steps/ process to find the surface area for rectangular prisms.
Unsatisfactory (Beginning): I struggle to identify the steps/ process for finding the surface area of
rectangular prisms.
GROUPING OF STUDENTS & RATIONALE: PRIOR KNOWLEDGE NEEDED/(THIS CAN BE

INSTRUCTIONAL MODEL(S) & RATIONALE:


Students will be working in small groups for this activity in order to give them greater access to the
content and to instructor support. The purpose of this grouping is to give reluctant learners the
opportunity to engage in hands on activities and gain a greater understanding of the content.

PROCEDURE AND ACTIVITIES (Name teaching strategy for each TIME ALLOCATIONS
activity (cooperative learning, presentation teaching, guided
inquiry, etc.)

1. PRE-ACTIVITY: ADVANCE ORGANIZER 3 minutes


Entrance Ticket:
1. Draw a rectangle.
2. Write the formula used to find the area of a rectangle.
3. When given a rectangular prism, how do you find the
surface area?

Transition: Tell me how comfortable you are with this information.


1. Draw a smiley face on your paper if you are comfortable 1 minute
with this information, you knew most or all of it.
2. Draw a neutral face if you are in between, maybe you knew
some of the information but not all of it.
3. Draw a frown face if you are not comfortable with this
information, or you did not know it.

2. ACTIVITY
Group Activity:
1. Pass out packet with guided notes and worksheets. 3 minutes
2. Students are given two problems to solve for area of a
rectangle. Work is done independently and reviewed as a
group. Reinforce prior knowledge.
3. Then, surface area is explained using a rectangular prism 5 minutes
net. Box is laid flat sides are explained and area is calculated
as a group. Instructor will write each step down on the
white board. Modeling is done by the instructor with input
from the group this is a review of prior learning.
4. Next students will be given a box (Christmas present) that
has measurements written on 3 dimensions. Students will
work to find the surface area of the box (rectangular prism).
Students are given the choice to work as a group of three 10 minutes
or independently with instructor support. Students will use
a blank piece of paper to record work and steps/process. I
will announce that clear work is necessary because we are
going to share our process once we are finished.

2 minutes
Transition: Students will highlight key parts of their notes.
Key parts include: Steps/process, answer, etc.

4. POST ACTIVITY/ Exit Ticket 6 minutes


Once complete students will explain their process to the group
for finding the surface area of the rectangular prism.

ASSESSMENT:
Formative assessment (check off sheet- success tracker) will be used during post activity/ exit ticket. As
students explain their process to the group for finding surface area, I will use the list below as a gauge
to check for understanding. Student work/ explanation should include the following:
1. Identify the sides of the prism.
2. Use given dimensions accurately to find the area of each side.
3. Clear steps to solve each formula (3 for a rectangular prism).
4. Accurate calculation to solve for the Surface Area.
5. Accurate answer labeled with units.
STANDARD 6. GA. 4
Represent three-dimensional figures using nets made up of rectangles and triangles,
and use the nets to find the surface area of these figures. Apply these techniques in the
context of solving real-world and mathematical problems.

OBJECTIVES
1. Students will identify the process to find surface area of rectangular prisms.

2. Students will list the steps/process to solve surface area of rectangular prisms.

3. Students will demonstrate understanding by applying the steps/ process to find


the surface area of rectangular prisms in the context of solving real-world and
mathematical problems.

DECONSTRUCTED LEARNING STANDARD

Exceeds: I can use the steps/process for surface area of rectangular prisms to solve real world
problems.

Meets: I can apply the steps/ process for surface area of rectangular prisms in the context of
solving mathematical problems.

Developing: I can Identify the steps/ process to find the surface area for rectangular prisms.

Beginning: I struggle to identify the steps/ process for finding the surface area of rectangular
prisms.
