Smoothie Box

Pupils demonstrate their understanding of nets by designing a net of a box that contains 12 bottles. Given the full size top and side views of the bottle, they determine the dimensions needed for the finished box. The directions do not call for an accurately drawn net, but they do require the dimensions to be included on the net.
