This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 13, Unit 5, Grade 8. In this optional activity, students use colored pencils (or pens or highlighters) to label the radius and height on different pictures of cylinders. Then they sketch their own cylinders and label the radius and heights of those. The purpose of this activity is for students to practice identifying the radius and height of various cylinders, some of which are in context. This activity can also be abbreviated if students demonstrate prior understanding of how to draw or label cylinders and only need a brief refresh.
