Measurement Culminating Assignment
Name: __________________________
Choose one of the following assignments to complete for your culminating activity in
measurement. Please be sure to fulfill all assignment criteria.
1) Santa’s New Workshop: With the Christmas season busily upon, Santa has come to
the realization that boys and girls have been especially good this year, But as a result,
Santa has also come to the conclusion that his workshops are just not functional for all
the extra goods his elves must prepare this year! Santa needs to complete some
renovations to his workshop in order to accommodate all the new toy making that
needs to be done! You need to use your measurement skills to design a model of
Santa’s new improved workshop. Your model should include the following:
a. a clearly visible title
b. a detailed sketch that clearly show all units of measurement
c. clearly detailed information outlining the area and perimeter of each room
and/or building, with formulas included (a table would be useful here)
d. the total area of Santa’s renovated workshop
e. creativity and neatness
Santa was specific that he required the following in his new renovations – a larger parking lot
for his elves, a new stable for his reindeer, large circular worktable with circular benches in the
workshop for his elves, a break room, a large kitchen for Mrs. Clause, and, of course, a gaming
lounge. He was also clear that he likes a variety of dimensions for his rooms, and was excited
to find out that we have been studying shapes in math class – as a result, he wants at least
one of every shape included in his renovations!
Anything extra you would like to include is completely up to you. Be as creative and
thorough as you can. Your final product can be presented as creatively as you desire –
blueprint, computer constructed, graph paper, construction paper, 3-D model, etc. I will help
provide any materials that the school has available. A table would be an effective and
appropriate way to demonstrate your final measurements.
Be as creative as you can! Remember, our new shape this year was the circle – make sure
there is a focus on this shape in your final design, but other shapes should be used as well.
Santa is looking forward to seeing the designs for his new workshop! Good luck!
2) Stained Glass Design: People have been making stained glass designs for thousands
of years. Beautiful windows and artwork have been created using stained glass. You
are asked to create a stained glass window design using as many different shapes
possible that have been discussed in class. You may make an abstract design using the
shapes, or create a concrete design (a landscape, an image, etc). You may use various
shapes and various sizes of the shapes to complete your design. Use the following
criteria to complete your design:
a. use centimeter grid paper to sketch your outline and design, remembering to
use a variety of shapes and sizes
b. use a table to calculate the area of each shape included in your design,
including the total area of your glass design
c. you will need to calculate the perimeter of each shape in your design – include
this information in a table
d. construct a model of your stained glass window using tissue paper and black
construction paper
Be as creative as you can! Remember, our new shape this year was the trapezoid – make
sure there is a focus on this shape in your final design, but other shapes should be used as well.
Good luck!
