Patches the Cat: A Print-and-Build Paper Sculpture Kit

In this activity, learners get hands-on with geometry by making a polyhedron kitty sculpture. Several of the kitty's body parts are variations of a polyhedron called the rhombicuboctahedron - can you say that three times fast? Includes easy to print-out templates of the kitty and handy tips for construction.
