This Shorter Shovels activity & project also includes:
Learners won't have to dig themselves out of a hole thanks to an insightful video. Using the movie Holes as inspiration, individuals must determine the difference in the number of holes dug when digging with a shorter shovel. Because the size of the shovel determines the size of the hole, the smaller shovel means smaller holes. The question is, how many more holes are there?
- Ask learners to draw a labeled diagram modeling the different hole sizes
- Requires individuals to calculate the volume of cylinders
- Includes an entertaining movie clip that should get your classes' attention
- Provides a real-life application of calculating volumes of solids
- Does not include Act Three, the answer to the question
