Will one roll be enough?

Students can use the man or the basket as a reference as they try to approximate the size of these gifts and how much wrapping paper will actually be needed. Approximation, surface area, reasoning explanation, and diagraming!

An X-box is added to the mix and students are given the size of roll of wrapping paper.  Do they have enough?

One more enough wrapping paper activity:

Do I have enough wrapping paper?  Ask kids if they think if one sheet will be enough to wrap the gift.  Ask them what information they need to be able to figure this out.  They might talk about setting up a scale based on the iPhone in the picture.  You can also provide students with the dimensions of the box. 6.G.1, 6.G.4, 7.G.6, HSG.MG.A.3, MP5
