Students make a 3 dimensional representation of shapes.  In this mineral and crystal structure lesson, students divide into groups and use paper to make a 3 dimensional shape.  Groups put all their shapes together to make a compact structure.  Students relate their new structures to crystal structures.

Lesson Planet has really helped me with not going "bonkers" over trying to find innovative and fun activities to incorporate into my daily lessons. Kids, even highschoolers whom I teach, don't want to have lectures all the way through each class period, so having activities that are fun can make students more involved which helps them learn the concept of whatever topic I'm teaching.
