Designing Candy Cartons (Grade 6): Students represent three-dimensional candy cartons using nets. They design a box to fit a given an upper limit (the total surface area must fit on a single sheet of paper) that will hold a given volume of candy.

Students are required to draw either an accurate full sized or scale drawing net including flaps necessary for carton construction.

After completing the task, students can analyze sample student work to deepen conceptual understanding.
