Exploring the Amazing Circle in 3-Dimensions

A fun activity for your math class, this lesson helps students to literally get their hands on the concept of geometry. First, students fold circle cut outs to create equilateral triangles, then glue the triangles together to create each of the five platonic solids. They create a chart identifying the number of vertices, edges, and faces on each shape.
