For some of the nets you can simply count the centimetre squares.
For other nets you will need to measure the dimensions of each shape and use a formula to work out the area.
Task Two: Carefully cut out the nets and fold them into a 3D shape. Name all the 3D shapes you have made
Task Three: Design your own net for an Easter Egg box.
Draw a plan for the net and the logo on a piece of paper.

Work out the total surface area of your box.
