Bring in literature to your math classroom! The three activities found in this document go with the short book "Mummy Math: An Adventure in Geometry" by Cindy Neuschwander.
The activities include a foldable for notes (and directions), a hands-on construction activity, and another activity in which students must decode a "map".
Topics include: vertices, faces (number and shape), and edges; constructing three dimensional figures; and identifying and constructing nets.
I recommend reading the book with students before starting the activities, but the ideas could still be useful even without it. Great for introduction to geometry concepts related to three dimensional figures, and can be adapted for different grade levels (such as tying in formulas).
