Whether you choose to immerse your students in geometric solids, their vertices, faces and edges or engage them in your Geometry and Spatial Sense Standards! Vocabulary building at it's finest in the form of a dodecahedron.
But honestly, you could make a Dodecahedron Globe for ANYTHING!
There are three different projects included in this file that can be done in any order, any time of the year.
-- In “Dodecahedron Globe” (pgs. 12-18), students will be given 12 different panels with a net of a geometric figure in the center. They must complete information about the properties of these figures. When ready, they can use the panels to construct a net of a dodecahedron and build it! There is a blank page if you’d prefer to replace a solid for some reason.
-- All of the 12 figures are also included as full page nets (pgs 19-30). Students can cut out these nets and construct the figures as you see fit. There may even be a superstar who can construct all of the 12 figures and attach them to the panels on their globe.
-- In “Vocabulary Globe” Student will be given 12 regular pentagons to organize definitions and provide examples for any geometry topic of your choosing. This works great for semester or final exam review. While your choice of words can vary, the products will results in your students creating the net of a dodecahedron. After they're done with this, they won't ask how many faces one has.
Included for this is only a blank regular pentagon. I’ve also used this assignment in a Psychology class as a “Me Globe” project where students design 12 panels about their life.
