Build, sort, and classify geometric solids, then store them in a box with information about each figure.
Identify and review familiar 3-dimensional geometric shapes and their mathematical names with the class. Students create an attribute grid listing the name of each figure, the number of sides, edges, vertices, and any other identifying characteristics.
Students use Crayola® Model Magic® to build a small, accurate set of each of these space figures. Dry for 24 to 36 hours, turning pieces occasionally to expose all sides to air.
Students write their initials on each dry shape with Crayola Fine Line Markers.
Students use a recycled box with a lid to hold the geometric figures. Trace all sides of the box on construction paper. Cut out each piece with Crayola Scissors.
Draw and label all of the solid geometric figures on the papers with Crayola Metallic Colored Pencils. Attach these papers to cover all sides of the box using Crayola Washable Glue Sticks. The paper on the top of the box should have the student's name on it.
