Investigating Nets and Polyhedra
Fifth graders create a net for a given polyhedron. They determine the corresponding polyhedron for a given net. Students investigate several polyhedra (cube, tetrahedron, and one of their choosing) and their corresponding nets. They define the term polyhedron as a closed three-dimensional surface formed by polygons.
