Help your students “see” what math is all about as they develop problem-solving, visual-motor, and creative thinking skills with this series of challenging and fun projects. Using ordinary classroom materials, students work alone or in small groups to design flat patterns that fold into everyday three-dimensional objects such as a house, bookcase, or sailboat. Each project is designed to stand alone, but the projects are arranged from basic to advanced, and build on one another as they progress. Included activities provide opportunities for students to complete written analysis, develop specific questioning skills, engage in group discussion, and experience follow-up learning based on deconstructing the models. Grades 5–9. A total of 15 projects, which take from 45 minutes to 4 hours to complete. Interact.
