In this activity, learners make "totally tubular" forms of carbon. Learners use chicken wire to build macro models of carbon nanotubes.
This activity gets learners looking at 6-sided shapes in nature, including the cells of a beehive, as well as other shapes.
In this activity, learners follow simple directions to explore and create platonic solids.
In this math lesson, learners arrange pattern blocks to create tessellations and to explore geometric patterns. Learners first explore making patterns with a variety of pattern blocks.
In this math lesson, learners compare pattern blocks to visually understand halves, thirds, and sixths.
In this activity, learners explore the structural strength of triangles by creating their own free-standing geodesic dome out of plastic straws.
This strategy game has simple rules but can be a challenge. Players start with an empty hexagonal grid. On each turn, a player initials one empty hexagon on the grid.
As learners play this game, they develop logic, geometry, and spatial visualization skills. Players start out with an empty hexagonal grid.
In this activity, learners use tangrams ( 7-piece puzzle tiles) to assemble a variety of shapes. Tangrams are ideal for improving spatial reasoning and geometry properties.
In this math lesson, learners identify the relationship between the number of sides in a regular polygon and the number of struts needed to make each polygon rigid.
In this activity, learners will build a honeycomb. Learners will investigate how the shape of the honeycomb develops. Activity includes step-by-step instructions and extension ideas.
In this activity, learners cutout a set of shape finder templates to explore shapes in the world around them.
