Description:

With this animated activity, students can help the Cyberchase team build a new fleet of Cyberspaceships. Students drag, place, and rotate unit line segments on a grid to form an enclosed figure that becomes the outline for a spaceship. In this two-part activity, students first create differently configured shapes with eight pieces and then with ten pieces. After a shape is formed, the perimeter and area are stated, and seated passengers are shown as the shape transforms into a spacecraft that then blasts off. Hints are available, and a table shows all shapes already completed. Copyright 2005 Eisenhower National Clearinghouse
