In this activity, students use gumdrops and toothpicks to build 3-D figures. On the skill sheet, students will build the 3 listed shapes and then there is space to create their own,such as a hexagonal prism (my kids love doing those larger ones). They will then write the number of vertices, edges, and faces.
Kids have a blast doing this activity!
If you prefer to use marshmallows, I have a sheet in my store for that too.
This could even be a math center.
