Create colorful, fun polyhedrons.
Engage student learning with playful projects that encourage physical fitness. Create dimensional objects from geometric shapes to demonstrate how math is a part of everyday life. Students retain knowledge better through hands-on experiences that reinforce concepts. Challenge students to find the area of the objects and encourage them to be build unique dimensional objects of their own.
Students learn the structure of geometric solids using triangle, square, pentagon, hexagon and octagon faces and reinforce basic geometric principals.
Supplies Used: Cardstock, Poster Board, Rubber Bands
The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.
Pre-K-12: Instructional programs from Pre-Kindergarten through grade 12 should enable all students to analyze characteristics and properties of two- and three-dimensional geometric shapes and develop mathematical arguments about geometric relationships.
Pre-K-12: Instructional programs from Pre-Kindergarten through grade 12 should enable all students to use visualization, spatial reasoning and geometric modeling to solve problems.
