Students will learn how to use an every day item, paper, in a way they have not before. Each student will become an engineer by building their own 3-D paper strip sculptures to help them understand the difference between 2D and 3D.
Math Geometry K.G: Identify and describe shapes (squares, circles, triangles, rectangles, hexagons, cubes, cones, cylinders, and spheres).
K.G.3 Identify shapes as two-dimensional (lying in a plane, “flat”) or three dimensional (“solid”).
Talk about how to use flat, two-dimensional, strips of paper to create three-dimensional shapes.
