    Hi All,
    I'm looking for a fun lesson plan on teaching surface area with non-standard units. Please help, thanks!

    Hmm. You could have kids cover a box (cereal/Kleenex/etc) with nonstandard items and count up how many such items it took.
    Examples:
    Name tags
    Index cards
    Bandaids
    Popsicle sticks
    Cotton balls
    Etc
