Tin Man Project

We just wrapped up our Tin Man Project. My student teacher and I decided to attempt this project to review surface area! It turned out really well and the kids were engaged!! (I know that's a total buzz word in education, but for real. They loved the project!!) We collected boxes/toilet paper rolls for about a week and a half, showed this video and then let the kids get to work. 

We didn't put much stipulation on the Tin Man. He had to have at least 5 body parts and consist of at least one prism and one cylinder. This is what they came up with: 
A cat!

Justin Timberlake (As long as I have my
suit and tie!)

He also has a cape on the back!
