# 3D Modeling of Volume and Surface Area

Title: 3D Modeling of Volume and Surface Area | Author: Nick Schaumberg |

Subject(s): Math | |

Grade Level(s): 10 (Geometry) | Total Time: 2 Class Periods |

__Overview / Description:__

Students will create a 3D model comprised of 3 different shapes. This will be done with Play-doh or in Tinkercad. They will then find the volume and surface area of the composite 3D shape.

__Learning goals/objectives:__

After completing this activity, students should be able to . . .

- Find the Volume of a composite shape.
- Find the Surface Area of a composite shape.
